If there is one thing that has come into its own during the past year it is the appreciation of our local parks, and now there is a new initiative to ensure we all make the most of them.
Picnic in the Parks, a popular event in Dorset, has moved online and is full of fresh ideas to find inspiration, discover new experiences and enjoy fun health and nature-related activities.
By moving the events online, people can find fun new ways to enjoy nature and look after their health from home. Created by Stepping into Nature, Natural Choices and Active Dorset, along with local organisations and community groups, there is a range of activities to suit. To explore the park visit www.picnicintheparks.org.
Steph Aburrow, Stepping into Nature project officer said, “There is a fantastic mix of activities and is all available for free. You could choose to go on a virtual walk through Dorset’s countryside and beaches, take part in Park Yoga and creative writing and even learn about Dorset’s history and wildlife. As the seasons and Covid restrictions change, so will the mix of activities available so you can keep returning for new inspiration. It is just a really positive place to explore and is great used when you are stuck for ideas of things to do.”
At the start of 2020, there were 10 Picnic in the Park events planned across Dorset, however as Covid-19 came along all the events had to be cancelled.
Maria Clarke, Dorset Local Nature partnership manager and Natural Choices lead said, “We would love to know what people think of Picnic in the Parks and what else they might like to see on the pages to keep improving it. As a thank you for taking part in a short survey we are offering a Dorset Food and Drink hamper prize worth £50.”
