The regeneration of the Queens Park has come to a halt as the contractor has gone bankrupt. This is a virtual tour of the state of the park April 2009. We can then show you updates as they happen once the new contractor starts work.
We start at the entrance by the BMX track and enter the park
We come to the children's area and the old shelter which is in need of restoration.
Turning to our right there used to be green houses with lots of plants for the park during the summer months this has all gone now
Down to the lake which has been drained and the islands trees removed first is the top end near the golf coarse
Then the main part near the entrance
The bridge to Burma Island has been removed but the footings for the new bridge are in ready
We then come to the Cafe and the memorial
The path down to the band stand and the bird houses has been removed but again new footings are in ready
We then come to the main entrance
On the right is the tribute to Diana
We cant turn left as its fenced off but we can see what was the wall garden and little pool
What was the Corination walk down the the bird houses has all been removed
Up the hill we have the garden for the blind which is still going but no one can get to it
Finally we come to the old Band Stand were there used to be bands playing on a Sunday in the summer
Walking around we come to the other entrance which is blocked of and the old shelter is still there in need of repair
