About Parks Activator

Are you interested in our beautiful, urban parks and would you like to help us develop them into nature filled community hubs for their neighbourhoods?

Bournemouth Parks Foundation, partnering with BCP Council, is one of nine organisations across the UK who have been selected for the Future Parks Accelerator fund from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to find new, inspiring ways to develop and manage our greenspaces.

A stepping stone for that is creating three pilot parks in Parkstone, Somerford and Winton where we can deliver a programme of work to deliver nature activities, health initiatives and community engagement to develop these parks. We have a fantastic opportunity to join our innovative team, working closely with the community and the wider Greenspaces team, to make that happen.

You'll use your experience of leading nature-based sessions to facilitate a programme of activities which brings the park to life, engaging with a wide range of the community to encourage more people into our parks, for longer, while also improving the quality and biodiversity of the parks.
