About

We are a group of 6 students from the University of South Wales studying BA Geography. As part of our course we are taking part in a module called Participatory Groegraphy. As part of the module we have been working in Darran Park, Ferndale to achieve the Green Flag Award. The Green Flag Scheme recognises and rewards the best green spaces in the country. We hope to get more community involvement in the park.

We have worked along side RCT and we are also working with Darran Park Primary School, in order to see what is already going on in the park. The school regularly use the park for physical education lessons, and also use the woodland area as an 'outdoor classroom'. The park is also used by dog walkers and as an excercise route very often. The park is home to a bowling green, all weather sports field, a lake and a childrens play area.

In the school we have held a number of lessons with the schools 'eco' council. We have gathered memories from the children of their time in the park and also found out what they would like to see in the park in the future.

We have set up a People's Collection Wales, for the community of Ferndale to input their memories of the park through the use of photographs and any other documents they may have. In doing this we hope to form a 'hub' for the community so they can reminisce about their memories in the park.
