The Park Centre has been established to provide resources to the local community.
The project was initially funded by South Glos Council, who worked closely with the Kingswood community to establish a resource required in the locality.
Extensive consultation highlighted a need for a facility that could be used to bring new social, educational and business opportunities to the community as a whole.
The Park Centre hosts a number of key events for various clubs and associations - see below and right for details.
