Sydney Gardens Parks for People Project

Sydney Gardens is one of Britain’s best remaining Georgian Pleasure Gardens. It opened in 1795. It is a short walk from the town centre and situated behind the Holburne Museum in Bath. The Great Western Railway runs through it, and the Kennet and Avon Canal. There are wonderful trees, paths, historic buildings and lawns for relaxing, picnics or dog walks. And there's a labyrinth that you can explore, recreated from the historic design and mown into the former Bowls Club Lawn - go and see if you can find the centre...

Sydney Gardens is currently in the 'Development Phase' of a Round 2 bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to secure a total grant of £3.4 million to improve the historic park.  The funding will be used to restore historic buildings, invest in landscaping works, renovate the play area for use and create new gardens, alongside a programme of events and activities. The project will celebrate the fascinating history of the gardens, with its Cosmorama, Labyrinth, Merlins Swing, Concerts, Public Breakfasts, Galas and Illuminations.

We are running a series of activities over the spring and early summer of 2018 - from walks and talks to trainng and volunteering.
