Barefoot Trail and Sensory Garden

Barefoot Trail and Sensory Garden

The Rangers are working on an exciting new project to develop a new Barefoot Trail and Sensory Garden.

Aims

We hope to create:

  • a multi-functional space that can be enjoyed by individuals and groups with a range of abilities
  • a unique barefoot trail – one of only a few in the UK
  • a peaceful and secluded area encouraging mindfulness and sensory exploration
  • a community space where volunteers can develop new skills

Location

The area is within close reach of the Golf and Activity Centre and Kingsmere Station (200m) where toilets, including accessible toilets, are provided.
It is a quieter and more peaceful area of the country park that doesn’t attract large crowds.

Public Consultation

We are very grateful to everyone who took the time to look at the Barefoot Trail and Sensory Garden Consultation document and fill in our online questionnaire. The survey has now closed and we are looking through the results to start designing a space that will provide as much benefit as possible to as many people as possible.
If you would like any more information about the project or would like to give any feedback you can email katie.davies@dorsetcouncil.gov.uk with your thoughts or questions.
