The Level Restoration Project - Join us On The Level

Be a part of The Level


The Level, vol planting Dec 2013

Key to The Level's future is continued community involvement.

The park's restoration was fully completed in December 2013, and you can expect to see various activities emerging at the park as and when there is sufficient community volunteer assistance to help with setting up and running these. We have opportunities for everyone

You might be interested in volunteering to help us bring The Level Activity Plan [PDF 163KB], into being. Activities already happening at the park, after we trained additional volunteers, are regular Healthwalks and Play sessions.

If you don't wish to be involved in an "on the ground" activity, consider joining our Level Communities Forum. The group has agreed its Constitution, has elected a committee, and is looking for additional members, especially those with communications (including social media) skills, or who are interested in helping out with administration. Browse the Forum's meeting notes.

The Level, Opening Petanque

Opportunities on the Activities Plan include gardening (working with the new Level Garden Manager and the city council's park rangers), wildlife and conservation activities, arts and crafts, play sessions, sports and games, history and heritage, surveys, promotional and "behind-the-scenes" help, and much more!

Volunteers will be given all necessary training and support.

Why volunteer?

Volunteers elsewhere in the city tell us they do so for a number of reasons, including:

  • Having fun while learning new skills
  • Helping build personal confidence
  • Extending and sharing knowledge and interests
  • Meeting new people and enhancing social life
  • Boosting CVs
  • Feeling really involved in helping local communities
  • Having the chance (maybe!) to be featured in local media!
