Green Door project

Green Door is a Big Lottery funded project which aims to encourage people, particularly older and disabled people, to make more use of the green spaces in the city, to improve their physical and mental wellbeing and to reduce isolation.

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.

Follow the links from this page to see the range of activities on offer and how to book on.

The project is based at the Green Door Hub Building and Accessible Cycle Hire Facility which opened at Westport Lake on 16 September 2013. This facility will has several adapted cycles for use by people with disabilities, as well as standard cycles for hire. For more information, click on the Cycle hire link on the left.

The project is staffed almost entirely by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. If you would like to volunteer with the project, please click on the Volunteers link. Volunteers will be able to choose for themselves which activities they take part in, and how much time they can give.

Activities include:-

  • Outdoor learning activities;
  • Guided nature walks for all ability levels;
  • Wellbeing activities such as tai chi and relaxation.
