Yippee! parkrun to recommence on Saturday 5th June. Can’t wait to see you all back in the park.
The toilets in the park will be closed from Christmas Eve until the 2nd January.
During this period council staffing levels are reduced and there’s other things that need attending to for those that are working – like supporting those in need during the crisis for as an example.
Normal service will resume on Saturday 2nd.
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.
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.
