The LevelThe fences are coming down at the south end of The Level, which includes the children’s play area and the new skatepark, on Friday 26 July at 5pm, just in time for the summer holidays.

There will be ‘dancing’ fountains, a sensory garden, tables for board games and ping pong, a pétanque and seated bowls area, and picnic tables with embedded chessboards. Historic features from the early 1920s have been restored, including the park pavilions. The new skatepark, on the other side of the central Rose Walk path, will also be open for skaters and BMX riders.

The CityParks Projects team which has spearheaded the £2.3m restoration project, expects the rest of the northern area (including the specially-designed 2D artwork where the north lawns paths cross), plus the new eco-friendly café, to open in late August or early September.  The date for a grand opening event for the whole community to take part in and enjoy will be announced as soon as possible.

Find out more about the Level restoration project on the council’s website.

The Right Here project is putting on a new activity called Walk and Talk.

The activity will be group walks with 6 young people (16-25) at a time, who have been experiencing social isolation and challenges with meeting new people or being in groups. Each participant will initially meet 1:1 with a counsellor to discuss their feelings about the walk and any barriers, doubts, fears etc which they might be experiencing. On the day of the walk itself, the 6 participants will be accompanied by the two counsellors who have been meeting the participants 1:1, who will offer support along the way, as well as a youth worker (and a volunteer assistant) who will lead the walk, including facilitating some ice breaking and team building games. A day or two after the walk, the participants will meet with one of the counsellors again 1-1 to talk about how the day went for them. A few days after that, the group of participants will meet again as a group for some facilitated reflection on their experiences of the walk and meeting each other. Read the rest of this entry »
