Planting used in the project must be in keeping with the original Victorian design and of a similarly high quality to maintain the main attraction.
Construction projects inside the park include the development of a new Gwyn’s pavilion with a children’s play area and a horticultural training centre within the walled garden which is required to train volunteers and house staff.
There will also be a new contacts sports centre with synthetic full size pitch.
The park’s Gate Lodge building (pictured) will be restored while a bowling pavilion will be extended and a large water feature will be created to act as a focal point.
The park’s wall, gate and entrance will be restored as part of the project.
