Hyde Park Community Allotment
Our community allotment plot is located at Hyde Park Allotments in Hyde Park, Tameside – a fantastic park that not enough people know about!
We run weekly sessions for people aged 55+ where they can meet others, enjoy a bit more activity along with learning and sharing gardening skills, or just spend some sociable time outdoors!
Hours vary according to the time of year. For more information please contact:
You can do as little or as much as you want . We seek to provide a friendly, supportive setting for everyone who comes to the community plot.
The allotment is managed as a place for local people with limited space of their own, to come and to grow fruit and veg in a relaxed friendly place and meet others. We aim to grow the freshest healthiest produce we can, so we use wildlife friendly chemical-free growing practices.
The produce we grow is shared or used for community meals. In the last two years we’ve held 10 cooking sessions to prepare tasty meals in community settings – another opportunity for everyone involved to share recipes and skills and enjoy the fruits of our labours together.
The community allotment is supported by funding from:
