Park Palace Ponies

Conversion of theatre into an urban riding school

This is Park Palace Ponies. This is not about architecture of form and aesthetic, this is about questioning convention and using creativity to connect people together, to build engagement and community ownership.

This is a pilot project, which will run initially for 12 months to encourage young people to try a sport not ordinarily accessible in the urban environment. Oh, and it brings back into use a disused cinema building and leftover pieces of green space for pony grazing and connects to growing projects which will be supplied with manure.

This is a grass roots led project, which we helped to make happen, and we are proud of it.
