Queens Park Footpath Restoration Starts 9th November


The gardeners have cleared all the summer bedding and planted out the beds for spring


There is a massive amount of leaves in the park at this time of years and these should be used for compost as its a free resource


The plants there were put in the lake some our now in flower I thought it was funny watching the ducks as they covered all the plants with netting to stop them and what do the ducks do they swim under and get in anyway funny


A new sign has gone up by the sluice gates



Nature is confused by the warm weather for November and the hypericum is in full flower thinking its summer. The gardeners have saved a few pansies and planted them around the Gulf War memorial



Still lots of nice colours on the trees as they change for winter. The swans are still on the lake taking a heart pose DSCF0593

The aerator is now back on the lake after its been repaired and its actual on for once 


Queens Park Footpath Restoration:

Works Commence Monday 9th November 2015

20 week programme ( seems a long time to do a few paths but it is winter)

Principal Contractor is Ringway Jacobs

Supply Chain partner is Pronin Ltd

The southern entrance (Moreton Road) will be closed for the duration of the works long with the Southern routes of the park during the construction period, apart from a two week period over Christmas & New Year (Friday 18th December to 4th January 2016).

Installation consists of over 5000m of contemporary footway edgings.

10,000sqm of footway will be treated, this includes the creation of over 500m of new footpath to assist with access (DDA Compliant).

In addition isolated drainage repairs and some embankment stabilisation.   

The above allows for the treatment of the paths to the South of the Pavilion, with as much of the network completed within the existing confirmed budget.
