The BGT Trustees are launching an exciting new project for 2021 as part of the national Gardens Trust ‘Unforgettable Gardens’ campaign. We will be researching and promoting the value and quality of our public parks of historic interest across the County, of which four are on Historic England’s Registered Parks and Gardens.  Many other parks are also open to the public for example South Hill Park in Bracknell.

Covid-19 has shown the huge value of public open space to local communities.  At the same time, it is important that parks are properly looked after and the several very worthwhile projects, such as new play facilities, are designed and sited to conserve and enhance Berkshire’s park heritage.  Our aim is to achieve a better understanding of the history of our public parks and a closer working relationship with the people who look after them.

If you would like to contribute please contact us at bgtmembership@gmail.com.
