Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grants £1.39m to Victoria Gardens in Neath

The HLF has awarded £1.39m to Neath's Victoria Gardens, as well as granting first round passes for funding to 10 other parks and green spaces.

HLF chair Dame Jenny Abramsky said: "The news brings some seasonal festive cheer to 11 popular local parks.  The Heritage Lottery Fund has a track record of providing much-needed support for public parks across the UK; without it many of them would revert back to how they were 20 years ago - run-down, neglected and often unsafe.  We continue to champion parks, not just because they are an important part of our heritage, but also because they make a huge difference to the quality of so many people's daily lives."

The 10 parks to receive first round passes are:

  • Forty Hall Park, Enfield, London - initial support for a £1.3m HLF bid, including £100,000 development funding
  • Walpole Park, Ealing, London - initial support for a £1.98m HLF bid, including £210,100 development funding
  • Grosvenor Park, Chester - initial support for £2.26m HLF bid, including £94,300 development funding

  • Dalmuir Park, Clydebank - initial support for £732,600 HLF bid, including £11,700 development funding
  • Haddo Country Park, Ellon  - initial support for £993,500 HLF bid, including £95,000 development funding
  • Cyfarthfa Park, Merthyr Tydfil - initial support for £1.93m HLF bid, including £100,300 development funding
