Celebration, Education, Recreation: A Park for People

The Pavilion

When the Friends of Castle Green took over the lease on the old art college/council training centre, public consultation renamed the building The Castle Green Pavilion.

It is a Georgian building on medieval foundations and has had a variety of uses and misuses over the years, suffering from inappropriate development during the 20th century – the portico has been filled in, the Georgian roof removed and replaced with offices, and a concrete block added to the front of the Georgian facade.

The ultimate aim is to restore the Pavilion to reflect its historic past and re-create it for use as a sustainable community asset. In the meantime, it provides a home for Hereford City’s Youth Canoe Club and projects including Livewire 2015, developing music opportunities for the 12-25 age group to the weekly Yoga & Tai Chi classes
