Introducing Wharfside Park!

The new name of Wharfside Community Gardens and Allotments

After much deliberation and a whole lot of enthusiastic brainstorming, we have decided to rename our beloved Wharfside Community Gardens to Wharfside Park. This change reflects the evolution of our space and the growing diversity of activities and workshops we hope to offer to the community in the future.

So, what's new at Wharfside Park? Well, we're thrilled to announce that we will be offering Forest School sessions for children of all ages and abilities. These sessions are designed to encourage exploration, discovery, and a deep connection with nature. Our Forest School leaders will guide your little ones through a range of activities, including den building, fire lighting, and muddy adventures. They'll learn valuable life skills, make new friends, and come home with some fantastic stories to tell!

But that's not all! We're also delighted to announce that we'll be hosting a variety of ecology and sustainability workshops and activities. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or a complete beginner, there's something for everyone. You'll have the chance to learn about composting, beekeeping, permaculture, and much more. These workshops will be the perfect opportunity to share your knowledge and skills with others while also expanding your own understanding of ecological and sustainable practices.

Of course, our much-loved allotment plots and community gardens remain an integral part of Wharfside Park. We're proud to continue offering these spaces for you to grow your own fresh produce, share your gardening tips and techniques, and build connections with your neighbours.

We hope you're as excited as we are about these new developments at Wharfside Park. We can't wait to see you all there, getting your hands dirty and learning together.

Rich from plot 38+39 - great news about the expansion and exciting times ahead, but as I'm not on Facebook or Twitter so I don't know what (if anything) has been put up there or what regular discussion are had between the members on there. So just a couple of questions from myself if that's OK?

  • Is there anything on the current site that shows the layout and location of the adjacent land being developed at all?

  • Will the allotments be accessible to everyone who joins Wharfside Park or will they be secure to plot holders as best as possible?

  • Will parking be increased?

  • There was talk about toilet facilities being introduced, is this part of the new development?
