How are you enjoying autumn in the park and the new outdoor gym? It feels good to look around the park and see all the improvements this centenary year so far, and we are so grateful for all your positive feedback and support this year.
We have a busy Autumn in store and more improvements to come too…
Firstly, we are very excited that the Catford Arts Trail is coming to Forster Park!
Come and make some nature and landscape art with us this Sunday 9th October in the Outdoor Learning Area and on 16th October in the Sensory Garden, 2-4pm, and join the rest of the arts trail through Catford and Bellingham.
More details below
There will also be a Peace of Cake community gathering in the Sensory Garden for Sabina Nessa on Sunday 23rd October and a Lewisham launch of the four new outdoor gyms on Saturday 29th October.
We’ll be in touch about some other things but please do in the meantime pop in to any of these events and say hi.
