Page Park

Page Park is a well-managed, safe and welcoming green space for the Staple Hill community and visitors to enjoy events, activities and quality facilities.

In recognition of its importance to the community, a £1.6 million grant was awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund Park for People programme in 2015 to the council and the Friends of Page Park to help restore and improve the park over a three year period.

The improvement programme includes the following community needs:

  • a new café / community building (with new toilets)
  • new toddlers play area
  • refurbishment of tennis pavilion and use as a volunteers centre/tennis pavilion
  • creating and improving landscape and habitats
  • repair and restoration of stone boundary walls
  • restoration of the clock tower shelter
  • restoration of stone gate pillars
  • repair / improvement works to some paths
  • improvements to the accessibility of the park
  • restoration of all park gates
  • restoration of granite drinking fountain
  • replacement of park railings (cut down in WW2)
  • creating a compost area so green waste from around the park can be recycled
  • a comprehensive programme of activities and events to engage more, and a wider range of people with the heritage
  • training and skills development for new and existing volunteers to become involved in the care and management of the park
  • a wide range of interpretation and learning projects

A programme is underway helping to contribute to the regeneration of Staple Hill by improving the quality, accessibility and facilities of the park. The funding will also help to provide volunteering, training and skill development opportunities linked to the activities programme for the park.

Green Flag Award

This year (2019) will see much of the work completed and Page Park will be entered for a Green Flag Award. This award is the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales.
