We are working with Bournemouth University to collect as many memories of Upton Country Park as we can from our local community; a project that will culminate in a Summer Exhibition.
If you would like to help us gather memories – or if you, or anyone you know, has memories of Upton Country Park, how you have used it, how it has changed, and how it has been loved – then we want to hear from you. Ask your grandparents for their stories too!
