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 aims to focus on our charitable objectives and in the Trust 'behaving' like a charity - not only to provide a more enjoyable Park and a better service to our visitors, but 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:
To provide for the recreation of the public by the provision of a Park for the benefit of the inhabitants of Peterborough and visitors with the object of improving the conditions 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.
