The 11 projects that rethought parks from 2014-2016
Get to know these eleven projects, what models inspired them and more.
In 2014, Nesta in partnership with National Lottery Community Fund and the National Lottery Heritage Fund awarded £1million in funding to 11 pioneering Rethinking Parks projects. The models and methods they tested for parks management over the following two years became the solid foundation for the new £2million Rethinking Parks fund for 2018-2020.
The projects tested alternative models of management, new uses of buildings, business engagement methods, voluntary giving and using parks as a space to upskill the community.
