Ayr Field      

One of the few public open spaces in St Ives, apart from the beaches, run by an enthusiastic and dedicated community group.

The space has a large grassed area for ball games, childrens play area, butterfly garden and nature zone.

It is a short distance from the town centre - up the hill from Porthmeor Beach.

The group are always looking for more volunteers to help with planting and general maintenance of the site - new members are welcome.

Their website has details of latest news and events.

Steeple Woodland Nature Reserve      

A beautiful forty acre public open space and nature reserve around Knill's Monument, on the hills to the south of town overlooking St Ives Bay.

You can explore the woods, stroll over heathland and discover areas planted with young trees. It really is a great place to visit and a chance to get away from the crowds when St Ives is busy.

Many activities take place at the reserve, including volunteer work sessions on Sunday afternoons (2.00 pm -4.00 pm), research projects and community events.

St Ives Museum      

One of the hidden gems of St Ives - the museum is tucked away on Wheal Dream between The Harbour and Porthgwidden Beach.

Its packed with what I can only describe as "stuff" relating to the town, its history and residents. Its run by enthusiastic local volunteeers rather than "professionals" so its a proper old- fashioned museum not an "experience" or "educational enrichment opportunity".

There are hundreds of exhibits which include paintings, stuffed animals, archaeology, old photographs, clothing, textiles, bibles, houshold items, tools, model ships and loads more.

They are keen to recruit new volunteers so if you'd like to help out get in touch.

Entry is just £1.50 for adults and 50p for children.
The museum is open from Easter to the end of October.
