Triple whammy

The work to redo the main wall flower bed by Victoria Ave is under way. This is a triple whammy as to redo the wall they are using mud that was taken from the lake. This mud has formed a mountain up near the band stand and as you can see above they are removing the mountain to use on the wall.
This work had been delayed as there were Bats nesting in the wall and they couldnt be disturbed. The work should take about 4 weeks and once that is done they can then replace the railings at the top. So thats 3 jobs done.

Over on the main Queens Park site I have added 21 new pages so each part of the restoration from the plan has its own page so you can go straight to say the Bowling Green page and see pictures of the area as it was as it is today and once the restoration starts on each unit you can see whats happening. The site has over a hundred old pictures going back to the 1800 along with 100's of the modern day park

The 21 points are
1 West lodge repair refurbish
