Do you have fond memories of visiting Radipole Park in Weymouth when growing up?

If so, the town council wants to hear from you.

Weymouth Town Council is looking for people who would be happy to share their memories of Radipole Park and Gardens for an oral history project.

Audio recordings of some of these memories will be added to the park’s website and help to tell the story of its everyday history. 

The council is looking to hear from people who grew up near Radipole Park, or took children there when they were younger.

Or anyone who can remember what the park was like in the 1950s, 60s or 70s.

Anyone who has a story about the history of the park is welcome to take part.

Members of the public who take part will need to be available to attend a short interview session, to be asked about their memories of the park.

Interviews are likely to take place in late 2023 or early 2024. 

Participants will also need to agree that an audio recording of their interview, or part of the interview, may be added to the Radipole Park & Gardens website.
