For the past year DRCET has been facilitating the Victoria Park working group and on behalf of the group we have written the Victoria Park Update Report.

The report gives an overview of what has been happening with regards to the park over the past couple of years, including the Victoria Park Community Placemaking which was undertaken by EKOS on behalf of the Council. More than 40 people from 17 local organisations contributed to the Community Placemaking. The report also looks at how what will be happening moving forward.

The report contains a brief timeline for the park – a more detailed version of the timeline is available here.

The working group is also undertaking a short survey about the park which you can access here www.surveymonkey.com/r/VictoriaPark-Spring2018 and it would be appreciated if you can take a few minutes to complete the survey.

The report will be available from various locations in the local area. If you would like some hard copies of the report to hand out to people please get in touch. You can download the Update Report here DRCET_VictoriaPark_UpdateReport_Spring2018_Web .

The design and printing of the update report was partly funded by the Ward 12 Victoria Park Area Partnership.

The Charter for Trees, Woods and People (the Tree Charter) was launched in Lincoln Castle on 6 November 2017 – the 800th anniversary of the 1217 Charter of the Forest. The people of the UK have a right to the benefits brought by trees and woods. The new charter will recognise, celebrate and protect this right.

The Charter for Trees, Woods and People sets out the principles for a society in which people and trees can stand stronger together. The Tree Charter will draw its strength from the hundreds of thousands of people across the UK that sign and is rooted in more than 60,000 ‘tree stories’ gathered from people of all backgrounds across the UK.

Be a part of this historic moment, sign the Tree Charter to show your support for the principles.

Finding greenspaces has never been easier! The new free Greenspace layer in OS Maps is the easiest way to discover greenspaces across Britain.

Whether it’s a quick click online or a simple tap on the app, OS Maps lets you find different places for leisure and recreation across England, Scotland and Wales.

The Scottish Greenspace Map, released by greenspace scotland and the Scottish Government in 2011, was the first of its kind anywhere in the world. This new project with Ordnance Survey updates the Scottish Greenspace Map and extends it to England and Wales, with the aim of making it easier for people to find and access every green corner of Britain’s neighbourhoods, towns and cities.

MyPark_LogoMyParkScotland has been delighted to accept an invitation from Architecture+Design Scotland for an exhibition at The Lighthouse in Glasgow. The MyParkScotland exhibition will be on the second floor of The Lighthouse, outside the A+DS offices and will run until Sunday 2 August 2015.

The exhibition celebrates the wonderful diversity of Scotland’s parks and highlights how they make a difference to our lives and communities.  Many of us have treasured memories of days out in the park and so we’re encouraging visitors to share their memories, stories, pictures and ideas.

MyParkScotland which provides a new way to discover and support parks in Edinburgh and Glasgow (and we’re looking to extend to other areas) so the exhibition is a great way to find out more about this exciting project.

Please pop in and take a look – and please share your park stories and ideas.
