Picnic in the Parks

Online resource hub of local information, interactive activities and taster sessions.

We're excited to announce that 'Picnic in the Parks' – our popular park events to help people live well and love nature – have been transformed into a fun online resource hub full of fresh ideas to find inspiration, discover new experiences and enjoy fun health and nature-related activities.

Spending time engaging with nature, indoors or out, boosts your mood, self-esteem and motivation to be active. By moving the events online, people can find fun new ways to enjoy nature and look after their health from home.

Like the events, the hub is a rich pool of local information, interactive activities and taster sessions. You'll be able to explore a virtual park to find inspiration, get creative and discover new places through guided activities, talks, signposting and so much more.

When you enter the virtual Park you can explore 6 fun Dorset-inspired zones to enjoy for example, awe-inspiring films, virtual walks, and audio podcasts or take part in guided activities like Park Yoga, Wild Writing and History Walks.

The virtual park will grow and change with the seasons so keep visiting throughout the year for fresh ideas.
