Brinton Park – The People’s Park, is an exciting new project which aims to restore and conserve the park’s historic and natural heritage, fund new and improved facilities in the park as well as develop training, leisure, and volunteering opportunities for a growing and diverse local audience.

The project will see a £2.9 million investment into Brinton Park with a grant of £2.4 million from The National Lottery Heritage Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Some of the improvements to be carried out include:

  • Repairing boundaries/cemetery wall/retaining walls

  • Recreation of ornamental lake
  • New café and toilets
