Official Website for the
Friends of Apex Park
We are a voluntary, fully constituted group, established in 2001, who aim is to provide opportunities for community members to improve and promote the use of the park, to help protect and enhance Apex Leisure and Wildlife Park as a place of freedom, recreation, wildlife habitat and enjoyment for all sections of the local community.
We meet on a regular basis, and work closely with Sedgemoor District Council to improve the park as best we can.
Throughout the year, events take place at Apex Park...
In January 2009, the Friends of Apex Park Improvements Group was awarded £2615.00 Grassroots grant from the Somerset Community Foundation. £1615.00 will be spent on providing events and workshops for both adults and children throughout the 2009/10 at Apex Park and £1,000 was spent on activities for National Play Day, which was held at the park on 5th August 2009.
The Government's Green Flag Award scheme recognises parks that achieve certain standards in the same way that the Blue Flag scheme recognises clean beaches. The scheme also encourages parks to recognise the role of community engagement in reducing crime, improving educational opportunities and engendering civic pride.
