Architect sought for Lincoln park renewal
City of Lincoln Council is seeking an architect for the £3.7 million overhaul of Boultham Park
The project will restore the Grade II-listed former private park which was purchased by the local authority in 1929.
Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund Parks for People, the scheme will also create a new straw-built café and shop.
Further key elements include converting a former stable block into a new education centre and creating a new glasshouse for teaching horticulture.
The park’s bandstand, fountain and sundial will meanwhile be refurbished.
City of Lincoln Council has teamed up with local learning disability charity Linkage Community Trust to promote the 20 hectare project.
Boultham Park was formerly part of the gardens surrounding Boultham Hall which was demolished in 1959.
The estate was home to the Ellison family before being sold in 1913 and used as a hospital during the First World War.
The council bought the estate in 1929 and converted some of the land into housing the rest into a new park.
The deadline for requests to participate is 27 June.
