Rethinking Parks

Rethinking Parks was a joint Nesta, Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund England programme to find, support and test new approaches to raising income or reducing costs for public parks.

Budgets to maintain public parks have been shrinking across local authorities, and this programme trialled new methods and models to address this funding gap.

About Go to the Park

Go to the Park was developed by Burnley Borough Council and Offshoots, a project run by local social enterprise Newground.

The partners developed and tested a new approach in seven of the town’s parks, seeking to maintain them at a lower cost, increase biodiversity and reduce CO2 emissions, and to mobilise volunteers to help deliver the approach.
