Evaluating Pool Park Life

You cannot really describe Poole Park as greenspace as its central feature is a large Victorian boating lake, blue space as well as greenspace. This park much loved by local people has been in need of some TLC for a while, so a successful £2.7 million NLHF bid is just what it needed.

Now in the delivery phase R4C is working alongside the project team to provide an evaluation framework, to guide monitoring data collection and to undertake the final evaluation.

There is an exciting mixture of capital works designed to improve public access and the wildlife potential of the site as well as an extensive engagement programme for volunteers, the local community, and young people. Its really nice being part of a project that is such a part of life in Poole.
