Space 2 Play (Friends of Headley Lane Park )

You need to have JavaScript enabled to view this map

This project will redevelop a run-down playground in Headley Lane Park in Bristol which currently has limited play equipment which is broken and outdated.

Friends of Headley Lane Park was formed by three mums with young children who wanted a better play area for their children. The vision is to create a new, well designed playground which will be the pride of the community and encourage children to play outside more often.

Since August 2013 we have been fundraising and holding fun events in the park and thanks to the Mayors Fund from Quartet Community Fund we were able to make use of the CSV Play Rangers for 5 themed Play Days.

The community has gone from strength to strength and has come together to help improve their green space. Without funding our play area will never meet the standards of other parks and the children have nowhere fun to play.

We want to give our children the opportunity to exercise and have fun in their local green space.
Every child deserves a decent space to play!

My child enjoys going to the park at the moment the small park has little to offer meaning we have to travel by car to another park . It would be great to have some where to go we can walk to and play with her friends after school

My kids need somewhere to go after school to burn off energy and the local park doesn't offer them enough. We desperately need something in this area and it would be so well used if we had a new play area.

Having a new playground would make a massive difference to the area and would benefit so many people. My children would want to play outside a lot more if there was somewhere good to go nearby.

My kids prefer to visit other parks rather than the one on their doorstep. We need a new park with fun and challenging equipment. I would love to hear my children say ”Mummm can we go to our park”. Please let’s make this happen!
