Western Approach

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. Click here to view our events programme.

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. Inspired by the meadow, we commissioned local sculptor Ian Freemantle to create 5 wildflower seedpods based on examples from the park. These are part of the park's playable sculptures and can be found in the Wildflower Meadow, as shown on the map below.

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.

Additionally, we have widened the entrance road to provide a layby for a minibus to park and drop off church and school groups.

Please note, these parking areas will be used only as overflow for planned events. The main parking provision will still be at the Marsh Drive entrance(Click here to view a What3Words location for the car park: messing.twins.celebrate).
