Lloyd Park Green Gym

The Conservation Volunteers Green Gym Programme

The Conservation Volunteers' Green Gym program aims to provide people with a way to enhance their fitness, health and general well-being while taking action to improve the outdoor environment.

Green Gyms also enhance mental wellbeing through increased contact with nature, the social benefits of group activity and helping people contribute something positive to their community. TCV work closely with partners, including mental health charity Mind, to continually innovate Green Gyms to ensure that they maximise the benefits for participants.

The team have recently been working on weaving a willow tree sculpture, preparing the wildflower meadow for spring and cleaning the tools ready for the new season! They also look after the trees in the park, clearing weeds from the base of the trees and laying down mulch and pruning back dead and/or diseased branches as often as necessary. During the sessions the team will often carry out litter picks and fill a few bin bags of rubbish every week!
