Please note: From September 2021 - We will be regularly updating the living wall section of the website, as we progress. Get our ParkLife news for all updates
It is our belief that the Living Wall will become an area of great benefit to the local community in many ways.
We place a special emphasis on the carers of people with ADHD, Dementia and simular conditions. The sections of the wall will create a quiet and safe placefor these people to spend some relaxing time outdoors, as well as providing the opportunity to chatting with people who want to meet other locals and enjoy chatting listening to some music performances from the stage. We hope this one wall will encourage people who might not normally venture out much, to view it as a a safe place to come and relax - Enjoying life is important!
- It will also provide an environment for learning and teaching, offering peaceful places for everyone to benefit from.
- Technology will be used to help the natural park habitat and to spark interest for younger people.
- Utilising the naturally occurring water from the wall will help to achieve our goal of providing free drinking water for all the community.
- It is also planned to encourage a number of green environmental projects, which bring communities together and will improve the local environment for everyone.
