Event description

Description

We invite you to join a walk around the Castle area of York, to experience it as it is now and to imagine it differently. To help you do this, the walks are being led by experienced coaches from Coaching York.

The City of York Council is currently working towards regenerating this part of the city centre – which includes Fossgate, Walmgate, Piccadilly, Foss Basin and Castle area and Eye of York – and has a collaboration engagement project called My Castle Gateway, to involve lots of different people in this process.

As part of this we are running a public event to open up the Castle Gateway area. You will be invited to walk slowly along a route from the Eye of York to Tower Gardens around the Foss Basin and back up Piccadilly. You will be asked what the different areas mean to you and what you’d like to be able to do there in the future. Notes of the conversations will be taken and fed into the My Castle Gateway process.

Through taking part you will informing the development of a collaborative ‘statement of significance’ and a collaborative ‘brief’ on which the Council-appointed masterplanners will then work.

Accessibility Information:
The walks will take 1 hour 15 minutes. There is an accessible version of the walk for people who use wheelchairs or prefer not to walk so far. This walk will avoid the steps on the far side of the Foss Basin, though we will still go to a viewpoint where the Foss can be seen and talked about. On 29th July, this walk is designated for 2pm.
