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.

We are looking for feedback from people of all ages and abilities. Your feedback will help us to design a space that provides maximum benefit to as many people as possible.

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.

What we need

We would be very grateful if you could spare a few minutes to take a look at the Barefoot Trail and Sensory Garden Consultation document and then fill in a short online questionnaire or email katie.davies@dorsetcouncil.gov.uk with your thoughts and suggestions.
As a way of saying thank you for your involvement, everyone who fills in a questionnaire will get entered into a prize draw to win a Moors Valley season ticket. The winner will be selected at random on 19 August 2019. One entry per person.
