Park events - Weymouth and Portland

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council is keen to encourage local residents into the borough's gardens and open space. One way of doing this is to invite local groups to consider our gardens as a possible venue for an event.

Whether it is an outdoor performance, a stall selling produce, an art exhibition, picnic in the park or a sporting activity, the gardens make an ideal venue.

Walk and talk with the gardener

You can take part in a guided tour of the Nothe, Greenhill or Radipole with one of our gardeners. The walk is suitable for up to 10 to 12 people and takes around one hour.

Find out more about the plants, shrubs and bulbs in Radipole Parks Gardens.

Group visits

Call the Parks Unit to make a private booking for group visits Group visits include a gentle stroll around the Nothe, Greenhill or Radipole Gardens. During your walk the gardener will talk to you about the plants, trees and upkeep of the gardens.

Does your group have limited mobility?

Are you interested in the gardens but would have difficulty walking around them?

The parks unit has photographs of Weymouth and Portland's parks and gardens. These have been compiled into a presentation and talk which can be given to groups at their own premises. Priority is given to elderly people or people with disabilities, although requests will be considered from any local group (subject to availability) please phone the Greenspace and Bereavement Manager.
