How to boost your wellness through nature!

Come and explore a range of nature-based activities that deliver physical, social and emotional health and wellbeing at our Nature and Wellness Showcase at Castle Park on Thursday 12th August.

As a society we are increasingly aware that spending time in green space, or bringing nature into your everyday life, can benefit both our mental and physical wellbeing. With reports indicating that 75% of us value nature more now than we did pre-covid, the pandemic has shone a light on how vital access to nature-rich environments is.

Making Space for Nature has delivered enhancements at three sites in Liskeard, the biggest being Castle Park, where areas of previously mown grass have been planted with habitat shrub beds, nectar-rich flowering meadow patches and mini-orchards.

To celebrate and demonstrate the connection between nature and our wellbeing there will be a showcase of nature-based activities at Castle Park on Thursday 12th August from 3pm to 7.30pm.

The event is free of charge and available to all.

Come and have at a range of activities, whilst finding out more about providers in the area and how to join local groups. Active taster sessions and demonstrations include:

  • Yoga for Happiness
  • Woodcarving for Mindfulness
  • Natural Navigation
  • Forest Bathing
  • Sensory Nature Exploration Techniques
  • Intergenerational Walking Group
  • Story Telling for the Summer Reading Challenge 2021
  • Mass litter-pick


Speaking about the upcoming event, Charlotte Evans, Project Advisor at Cornwall Council said “Parks and urban green spaces are about enriching people’s quality of life. When our outdoor spaces are well-used and loved as a sanctuary of wellbeing, it helps reduce neglect and anti-social uses. Castle Park is a vibrant location in which to showcase the diversity of ways we can all increase our engagement with nature to support our health”.
