The Park Palace is a loved landmark situated in the heart of L8, built in 1893 as a purpose-built music hall. Throughout its lifetime, the Park Palace has provided years of theatrical performances only to draw its curtains for the last time in 1959…until now.
Park Palace Ponies is a social enterprise driven by an offer to provide riding lessons and engagement with ponies to children and the local community in an inner city context. With the purpose to provide this experience to children who may not have the opportunity to leave the city for lessons, Park Palace Ponies intends to re-establish the role of the horse in the city and benefit the surrounding neigh-bourhood.
Since securing 4 grazing sites around the Park Palace, work has begun in regenerating the former theatre into a suitable pony arena, whilst untouching the original architecture that still remains as breath taking as it was when in use.
