Postcard Competition

Enter our new Postcard design competition ! Boultham Park Lake Restoration Project are running an art competition for children and young people aged 5 to 18, inviting you to get creative and show people the area you want to live in the future. Our design a Postcard art competition aims to encourage young people to capture their hopes for local parks in the future.
Whether it’s covered in wind turbines and solar panels, or there aren’t any visitors dropping plastic wrappers – Maybe the lake is teeming with native wildlife and there are only bicycles parked in the carparks ?– we want you to paint, draw or design a piece of art that shows how you’d like your local park to look in the future.
The competition is a platform to raise awareness about the environmental issues important to you and to move others to take action through the creation of your work.

Lake Restoration Project – we’d like to know your thoughts on our art and interpretation plans

As part of the lake restoration project, we’re telling the stories of the lake, through art and information panels.

We wanted to know what you thought about our plans for art and interpretation so we were in the park on Monday 27th of July and Thursday 30th of July to speak to you, and despite the rain many of you provided valuable feedback which helped us understand what you thought of the proposals.

Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback !


Lincoln City Half Marathon Postponed

Due to Covid-19 the Lincoln City Half Marathon, for which Boultham Park was going to be the race village, has been postponed.

A press release from Lincoln City Foundation explains:


Lincoln City Foundation have announced that their flagship event for their charity due to take place on Sunday 20 September 2020 will be postponed until Sunday 19 September 2021.

Charlotte Hornsby, Operations Manager at Lincoln City Foundation said: “It is with regret we have to make this announcement.

“Alongside our event partner Curly’s Athletes, we have explored every possible option to guarantee the safety of our participants, community supporters and staff team, which has always been, and remains our number one priority.

“The support we have had from Lincolnshire County Council and City of Lincoln Council has been phenomenal and we all remain committed to bringing this event to the city next year, with an exciting route that providers runners with a true Lincoln experience.”

The Foundation have a mission to create and provide opportunities that inspire and empowers individuals and communities to develop and improve their physical, social or mental well-being.

Like many charitable organisations, the Foundation have been hit hard since the Coronavirus outbreak and many events of this nature around the UK have been cancelled or postponed.

Charlotte continued: “Sometimes the right decisions are the most difficult. On behalf of the half marathon team and Curly’s Athletes I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has shared in our passion and enthusiasm for the event, offered support and helped us in our consultation with businesses and communities.

“We hope that you will join us in 2021 and beyond, and you continue with us on the journey to bring this event to our amazing city year-on-year.”

Happy Birthday Boultham Park!

On this day 91 years ago Boultham Park opened to the public.

In recent years we’ve marked the day one way or another… you might remember in 2018 when we celebrated the ‘grand reopening’ of Boultham Park after its restoration. Thousands of people came to enjoy a beautiful sunny day, picnics, music, the Royal Wedding and FA Cup Final on a big screen. The cafe was buzzing, the ice cream vans couldn’t cope with demand!



Last year Lincoln’s Mayor visited and we marked the park’s 90th birthday with music from Lincolnshire Hospitals Band and Boultham Park cakes in the cafe.


We had great plans for this year’s birthday celebrations, but of course they had to be dropped because of Coronavirus restrictions.


However there is always next year. The wonderful thing about our parks is that they serve the community year after year, generation after generation. Boultham Park will still be there waiting for our events and celebrations when this is all over.

In the meantime, please continue to enjoy the park, safely, and let’s look forward to a time when the community can all come together again in Boultham Park and Lincoln’s other wonderful parks and open spaces.

Happy Birthday Boultham Park.
