Following a successful bid to The Lottery Awards for All fund the boardwalk around the pond has been extended across a boggy area of land which previously made the pond inaccessible from the paths at the back of the pond.

This means the pond is now accessible from the pathway at the back of the pond as well as from Queens Road and the rest of the eco-area. As well as improving access, the extension helps define the edge of the pond more clearly making it more attactive, and it also offers safe refuge and habitat areas for creatures living in the pond area. It’s a welcome addition, and just one of the things we are doing to improve the eco-area.
