Bolton Parks have some fantastic activities on offer with great things to do over the summer. If you are looking for something to do in Bolton, then look no further!



The Gateway to Urban Nature Project is led by Bolton Council in partnership with the Lancashire Wildlife Trust and Groundwork. Started in August 2010 this three year project aims to connect the community with the wildlife on their local park (woodland, grassland and wet- land environments) through a series of events, training workshops and volunteering opportunities increasing access to the natural areas of the Park and to work towards the Park becoming a Local Nature Reserve. 

The project is funded by Natural England through the Access to Nature, as part of the Big Lottery Fund's Changing Spaces Programme.
