Community Choice

With funds taken from the profits of the summer park events we're inviting you to choose a project to benefit the local community


In 2022 we embarked on our biggest programme of events in the park. Tens of thousands of people have visited Gunnersbury: whether bringing the family for a day out with dinosaurs, to listen to award-winning music artists or enjoy immersive cinema, and we’ve loved welcoming new and familiar faces to the park.

During the summer we pledged that a percentage of the profits would be directed back to the local community, and we've honoured this pledge by allocating 5% of the forecasted year end surplus to fund the Community Choice. This initiative gives the public an opportunity to choose a project that will bring a direct benefit to the local community.

The Community Choice projects have been championed by members from the Gunnersbury Team, and there are three projects to choose from! You can vote to bring new hedgerows (and habitats) to the park, give bursaries for schools to attend our immersive education programme who would otherwise miss out or purchase multisensory and accessible equipment for the playground.

Find out more about the projects by watching the videos below, click here for the transcripts and remember to vote!

Project One: Providing local schools who would otherwise miss out with bursaries to attend our school sessions

Project Two: Making Gunnersbury more inclusive with sensory learning equipment added into the playground

Project Three: Planting new hedgerows to bring new habitats to the park

You can vote for your favourite project here

 

We hope our community will get involved, vote for their favourite project and help spread the word about the Community Choice initiative.  

The poll closing date is Tuesday 3 January at 5pm and the winning project will be announced on Wednesday 4 January.
