Please note, this gym is currently on hold, but we will be re-launching in the near future (Spring 2022, hopefully)
Isleworth Green Gym offers a unique and free opportunity for local people to get involved in transforming local spaces 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 is currently on hold, but will be returning to Redlees Park in the near future.
- Redless Park
- Duke of Northumberland’s River
Time and meeting point
Thursdays 10.45am – 2pm. Meeting point is to be confirmed (once tool store is installed)
Redlees Park is the largest public open space in Isleworth and will be our primary site. 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.
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.
