About the park
The first parts of the park opened earlier this summer and provides new opportunities for:
- play and recreation
- sports and leisure for people of all ages
- families and communities to enjoy a high quality green environment
The final parts of the park, the pitch and the café kiosk, will open at the end of August.
We’ll continue to work with our contractor, idverde, who will help us maintain the Park over the next two years working with local schools to offer opportunities for work experience and placements.
