Wildlife Loving our Stunning Meadows at Radipole; Wildlife & Wellbeing

Have you been to visit our wildlife meadow at the far end of the play-park this year? It is blooming lovely, and that's official. Emily Brown, Weymouth's Parks Operation and Development Officer paid a visit to create a report on its progress and was blown away by what she saw and wanted to share it with us all....

2020; Lottery Bid Presentation & The Year We Realise the Importance of Green Spaces

Hands up, I'll admit to having deserted my scribings on our website over the last few months. It's been a hard one to focus on, hence most of our postings have been on our Facebook page. The year 2020 has been one hell of a ride so far. We are all living through something previously unimaginable, life changing, that'll go down in world history much the same as the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. As far as our Friends of Radipole Park and Gardens committee are concerned it has been a bit of an unknown. Watching and waiting for news of lockdown/slow release/ things permitted/possibility of...

Autumn’s Harvest Apples & Pumpkins; Radipole Gardens Carves and Creates.

There's so much going on to tell you all about that I really don't know where to start, but I guess our next event might be a good place to begin. Though this year might be drawing its cosy curtains around the park and gardens, that doesn't stop us hardy bunch from putting on a last few proverbial acts. Why not come along and join us for a couple of hours fun pumpkin carving on Saturday 19th October 2-4.30. Lets see what great designs you can create. Make sure you arrive early as there's free pumpkins to be had for all you early birds out there. (Pumpkin carving...

And the Band Played On; Weymouth Concert Brass Band

I can't believe we are already over half way through the year! Summer is finally upon us, delicious warmth on face, birds music-making in the trees and it's time to drag out and brush off those picnic baskets. What better way to spend a hot summer's day than lying in the dappled shade of our willows, liquid refreshment in hand, those scrummy fresh scones, cream and jam just beckoning you from our tea tent...

Can a Good Old Stomp Be Good for You? Wellbeing in Nature.

When running events in Radipole gardens, we invite along people that complement our ethos, such was the case when we organised our Wildlife & Wellbeing event back in in May. One of the ladies who attended that day, Emma Pritchard, led people on a 'stomp' through the gardens. Being a great believer in the power of nature to help heal mind and body, what she spoke about really resonated with me. We often see groups walking through our gardens, enjoying the sounds, smells, sights of nature and of course the company of others. A study undertaken by researchers at Michigan University, found that joining in group...

Hayley and her Hedgehogs; Why Protecting our Wildlife Really Matters

Here at Radipole we have our own identity that we are very proud of. Sometimes referred to as the Cinderella gardens of Weymouth, beautiful but secreted away in the town's proverbial back kitchen means that these gardens are a quiet green oasis away from the hustle and bustle of a busy sea side resort. Not only that but we are lucky enough to run side by side with Radipole lake and its bird reserve, making this space a perfect wildlife haven. Something we are committed to improving....
