Mindfulness In The park

Parks and green spaces have been the saving grace for a lot of people during the current crisis. Sandall Park has always provided the open space needed sometimes to literally ‘have some space’ and enjoy the fresh air.

Over the years we’ve encouraged fitness in the park with all our trails and fitness equipment, lately though we’ve directed our attention on trying to promote mental health – also aided by physical exercise. The creation of the Quiet Garden we hope has gone some way towards this, focusing on Mental Health Awareness.
We have taken this one stage further in the development of Mindfulness in the park. There is now a dedicated page for this under Facilities on this website. Look under facilities at the top of this page. We will follow this up in due course with a leaflet for those who don’t use the internet.

Old Sandall Park Trail

This could be fun for you and your family. We’ve created a virtual trail around the park using old photos from a bygone era!

All you have to do is download the  FREE! TiCL App to your phone (both Apple and Android work fine). Then go to the park and open the App. You will see the “Old Sandall Park Trail” will be top of the list. Open it and you’ll see a list of old photos with a brief description – just click [DIRECT ME] and an arrow will direct you to the location of the photo – simples! You can even add your own comments and memories.

NOTE: Magnetic catches on your phone cover can/will affect the direction arrow – so it would be wise to take your phone out of its magnetic case to avoid problems.

All technical enquiries direct to TiCL please.

FREE trails in the Park….

With great weather what a better time go to the park for your exercise (observing social distancing of course) and use the various trails  to keep the kids entertained.  You can download the free App or just print off a map if you haven’t got a smartphone.

1st/36th St Peters Warmsworth Scouts, Cubs and Beavers  created the  fabulous TiCLsticks family. They are now happily living in the trees around the park and can entertain children and families who visit, and get them exercising at the same timeIf you haven’t tried our TiCLsticks trail yet – you should. It’s free and it’s a great way to have a look around the park. The families have all been given names of people linked to the scout/guide movement.

The TiCL app is already up and running.  You can have a look at the tree trail on-line by CLICKING HERE. You can download the free App and track the characters around the park by downloading the TiCL app from the App store or Google play. 

Don’t worry if you don’t have a smartphone CLICK HERE to download and print a map of the rough location of each TiCLperson and let the kids search to their hearts content – a great way to spend your exercise time during lockdown.
