  • The provision of a generous park with new entrances, tree planting, playground, seating, new boundary treatment and wide paths throughout the park for the benefit of dlr
  • Provide a large, accessible playground that includes natural play to meet the needs of local residents
  • Improved pitch facilities
  • Improved public open space facilities within the area and improved pedestrian linkages


Works were completed in early 2021.
