Isleworth Green Gym offers a unique and free opportunity for local people to get involved in transforming Inwood Park and The Duke’s River for the benefit of wildlife and the local community.
All volunteers regardless of experience or levels of fitness are welcome. Experienced leaders start and finish sessions with a few minutes of gentle exercises and stretches to get muscles warmed up and reduce the risk of injury. We enjoy a tea break halfway through the sessions for hot drinks, healthy snacks and a chance to get to know each other.
The Green Gym has relocated from Redlees Park to Inwood park for the foreseeable future
- Inwood Park
- Duke of Northumberland’s River
- Redlees Park
Time and meeting point
Thursdays 10.45am – 2pm. Meeting point is Inwood Park’s main entrance on Inwood Road (TW3 1XG)
Inwood Park is the primary site for the Isleworth Green Gym. It is a fantastic little park at the heart of Isleworth, which boasts a mixture of ornamental gardens, playing fields and playgrounds as well as wilder areas, most notably several woodland patches and a wildflower meadow.
Volunteers will work on its development to increase biodiversity, enhance wildlife and improve visitor experience.
The Green Gym will also manage Duke’s River along Octavia Road and Riverside Drive, helping this section of the river to match with the ones up in Crane Park. We may also work in Redlees Park at some point.
Activities will include habitat creation and management (eg bulb and tree planting, meadow sowing, woodland making bird/bat box/bug hotels), as well as some gardening activities. We will also undertake surveying, litter picking, general restoration and path maintenance both at the park and the riverside.
