Chance’s Park has been short-listed for Tesco’s Bag of Help initiative.

From the 27 February to 6 March you will be able to vote for your favourite project every time you go shopping in your local Tesco store.  By putting your token in the Chance’s Park box, you will be helping to raise money for a new multi-play climbing unit to be installed in the park.  This will provide exciting and challenging play opportunities for local children!

Please share with all your Friends and tell them to put token into Chances Park box.

Weekly 5k Park Run

Sep 12, 2013   //   by acarruthers   //   Events, Latest News, Park Events  //  No Comments

Keep fit and enjoy a run around a beautiful park every Saturday morning at 8.30am and then relax afterwards with a drink in the Coffee Bar.

Run, jog or walk – the choice is yours.  Open to all ages and abilities so come down and have some fun and fresh air. Up to 200 people per run!

The run itself lasts for approximately an hour so we ask dog owners to please be aware and to keep their dog on a lead whilst the event takes place.  This will ensure that the park is enjoyed by everyone.

Extra runs held on bank holidays.
