Environment Trust Consultation on Canbury Gardens, Thurs 9th May 2019

The Environment Trust is running design workshops & drop-in sessions on Thursday 9th May 2019.  See more information and register. 

Canbury Gardens is a highly valued green space and visitor attraction in the Royal Borough of Kingston. Dating from the Victorian age, the park fronts the Thames and includes lawns, tennis courts and a bandstand.

The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames consulted in 2018 on a Supplementary Planning Document for Kingston Riverside, including Canbury Gardens. The Royal Borough has commissioned LDA Design to develop a Masterplan for Canbury Gardens as part of the whole Riverside of Kingston.

Environment Trust is supporting LDA Design who are holding a Design Workshop to discuss Canbury Gardens and their current use. The LDA Design team would welcome your ideas to inform future developments. 


Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
