Boultham Park

Welcome to Boultham Park!

This beautiful park to the south of Lincoln has something for everyone – space to relax and recharge; to play games and picnic; go for a run or walk the dog; enjoy the wildlife on a lake or woodland walk; enjoy a coffee or a meal in the Boultham Park Cafe (there’s outside seating, and take away too). There’s a chidlren’s play area and in the summer you can play tennis, try bowling or have a go on the putting green.

Restoration Project

In 2020/21 we launched the Boultham Park Lake Restoration project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and supported by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust

There’s information under the ‘Lake Restoration Project’ tab. We expect there will be lots happening later in 2020 and beyond, so please keep an eye out for details.

Please take a look at the Community and Volunteering page for information on the Boultham Park Advisory Group, and ways you can get involved.

There’s a map at the bottom of this page so you can find your way to and around the park.

There are regular buses, and car parks off Hall Drive and Boultham Park Road (at the back of the health centre).

There is a great park community and you will be welcomed.

Boultham Park Restoration Project

The park was restored in 2017-18, grant-aided by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund Parks for People initiative in a joint venture by Linkage Community Trust and City of Lincoln Council. We are very grateful to our main funders, and to National Lottery players, for making such a difference to Boultham Park. We are also grateful to our other funders – organisations and individuals who have donated money to enable the project to be delivered, and to the many people who have undertaken fundraising activities and encouraged others to give.

For the time you have given, for the money you’ve donated, for your support of our lovely park, we thank you.

Boultham Park is a special place to many local people, and we are thrilled to have been able to restore and protect a number of key heritage features within the park, and facilities within the park, as well as to provide a café and an education centre / glasshouse for Linkage College students and the local community.

Through the project we’ve been able to tell something of Boultham Park’s fascinating history, and to encourage more people in to the park, to get involved in events, activities and volunteering, or just to come and enjoy the peace and quiet. There’s more information under the ‘Restoration Project’ tab.
