Friends of Kingsgate Park in Yate seeking more volunteers

Friends of Kingsgate Park in Yate are hoping to attract more volunteers to help them look after the park, which is used by all ages.

We see Personal Trainers with their clients, joggers, mums with all ages of children, teenagers for a kick around or just a chat, lots of picnics when the weather is good - in fact you could say from 0 – 100 years old.

The group meets four times a year plus organises work days in the park and help Yate Town Council at the Easter Egg Hunt, the festival Yate Rocks and Carols in the Park.

Apart from that they also provide swan and duck food which is sold at the Vintage Birdcage Cakery.

All profits from this go back into Kingsgate Park, either for more swan/duck food, new benches such as the new red bench in the winter garden and plants.

Over the years many awards have been won including in 2017 being awarded the maximum 5 stars in the RHS Pride in Parks award.

Anyone interested in helping to keep Kingsgate Park as one of the green lungs of Yate - please get in touch.

About Kingsgate Park

Kingsgate Park is an excellent leisure area situated between Sundridge Park and Scott Way.

It's perfectly possible to drive past it without noticing it's there, but it's well worth exploring.

It's accessible on foot by various entrances from Kenilworth, Elmwood, Sunningdale and Scott Way, and there's a small car park located at the end of Elmwood, off Sundridge Park.

There's a large playground in the centre of the park, with an adventure area that will make the adults jealous!

The lake is home to swans, ducks and newts, and the eastern edge of the park is a dedicated nature reserve area. Use of model boats is permitted on the lake.

In 2003 Yate Town Council took over management of the park and the Friends of Kingsgate Park group was formed to assist the Council to do this in the best possible way.

Yate Rocks!

Each year Yate Town Council hosts Yate Rocks! - a free musical festival for all the family, with dance from local clubs and academies.

Click here to see a gallery of photos from 2018's event (the 13th year of the Festival), kindly supplied by Rich McD Photography.

There are children's games and activities, arts & crafts and community stalls offering a wide range of local products and novelties, and drinks stalls providing different alcoholic beverages alongside a variety of catering units for food and refreshments.
