Green Door project

About Green Door

Green Door is a lottery funded project.  We work with the community to encourage people, (particularly older and disabled people), to:

  • find something new to do
  • make more use of the green spaces in the city,
  • to improve their physical and mental wellbeing and
  • to reduce isolation.

Our volunteers

The project is staffed almost entirely by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. If you would like to find out more about volunteering with the project, please contact us. 


The project provides many cost-free or low-cost activities within green spaces. We offer a “pick ‘n’ mix” approach – you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.

We have a range of activities, including:

  • craft activities, such as willow weaving
  • walking events, including history walks
  • fitness and fun activities, such as kayaking

Our cycle hire

The project is based at our accessible cycle hire centre at Westport Lake.  We have lots of bikes which are specially made to be used by disabled people and people who find standard bikes difficult to ride.  We also have some standard bikes for hire.  For more information, click on the Cycle hire link on the left.
