Brent Lodge Park Animal Centre By Brent Lodge Park Animal Centre

We are looking to put the 'Lodge' back into Brent Lodge Park (the bunny park), by creating a versatile learning space for the community under the Transform Your Space' TYS programme.

Ealing Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Brent Lodge Park (the bunny park) lost its Lodge in the 1930’s and our plan is to build brand new and multi purpose building ‘The Lodge’, whose main function will be to act as a classroom to hold education sessions for schools and community groups as well as a place to meet for local families all year round.

The ‘green’ building, with its solar panels, will accent other wonderful buildings of the borough, incorporating the boroughs history and representing its future.

This project will enhance a much loved area of Ealing and provide a larger and more appropriate space for our school and community groups to use. BLP works closely with local charities, community groups, schools and local youth projects – and this new building will open up many more prospects for us to deliver opportunities not found, as we’re the only community zoo in Britain.

The space will also be made available for local community groups and will be sited on a currently disused piece of land within our perimeter.

What we'll deliver:

  • Clear the largely unused site, utilising local volunteers, in preparation for the foundations.
  • Provide the technical direction to build a facility that will benefit animals as well as visitors
  • Devise an education programme to further enhance our award winning community participation programme
  • Enthuse, involve and facilitate volunteers from the community, such as those from St. Mungo's Broadway.

Why it's a great idea:

Brent Lodge Park Animal Centre is a wonderful facility used by the residents throughout the borough of Ealing. The proposed building will increase our capacity for community groups and enable us to deliver education session to three times as many school children as we currently do. The new facility will also be an amazing place to inspire children and our service users about nature and a meeting space where families can spend time together.
Not only will this exciting new building benefit the local community, it will also assist us in our work in animal conservation.

Steps to get it done:

  • Raise money from every opportunity available to us.
  • Consult the local ward forums and schools to see what would suit their needs best.
  • Engage our service users and volunteers in design ideas
  • Offer plaques to large sponsors
  • Consult with Animal Centre visitors to see how they might use the space and engage more volunteers.
  • Encourage involvement, from the start, from service users, charities and local community groups.

The new education sessions, which will match the curriculum, will include;
