In this area we have created an overflow parking area and additional individual parking spaces around the pond. These additional spaces will help support our programme of events that take place in the park throughout the year.
The spaces have been surfaced with a reinforced mesh and have been seeded with grass. This method protects the grass and prevents the field getting muddy. Once the grass has grown, the mesh will disappear and look like plain grass again. We will continue to enhance the wildflower meadow in the area behind the overflow parking.
We have also created some new footpaths around the pond. These have been tarmacked in a base course and are waiting for their final coating of decorative chippings which will go on later in the year.
We have also widened the entrance road here to provide a layby for a minibus to park and drop off church and school groups.
