About The Trust
Nene Park Trust is the registered charity which looks after Nene Park in its entirety. Established in 1988 to ensure that the Park would be managed and protected forever, the Trust looks after all maintenance, coordination of the Park's activity programme and administration of commercial properties in the Park.
The Trust was provided with a 999 year lease on the land and was endowed with commercial properties and other assets which now generate some of the income required to maintain the Park.
The core purpose of the Trust is to:
- Provide facilities for recreation, education and leisure
- Establish parkland facilities
- Conserve and safeguard wildlife
- Preserve, restore and develop park features (infrastructure)
Our strategy 'Doing More with More' aims to focus on our charitable objectives to provide a more enjoyable Park and a better service to our visitors and also to take full advantage of our charitable status through the development of fundraising and seeking voluntary and partnership support.
Nene Park Trust's charitable objective is:
For the public benefit to provide parks and recreation grounds for the inhabitants of Peterborough and the surrounding region and for visitors with the object of improving the quality of life for such persons.
Our vision is:
To be the region's favourite Park, providing a permanent haven for heritage and wildlife and a wide choice of recreational activities for the people of Peterborough and the wider community.
Our Board Members:
Since the Trust’s inception it has been successfully governed by a Board of Trustees appointed both by The Trust and stakeholder organisations that were involved in its creation. The full list of our Trustees can be found here.
