Dudley Council to make park improvements
Residents are set to benefit from £56k of improvements to a number of Dudley borough parks.
National government funding, from the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government, is being used to improve accessibility, fencing and paths at six borough parks.
The top of Buffery Park by Black Acre Road will be screened off to improve safety and appearance following requests from the Friends Group and recommendations by the Green Flag Award judges.
At Vale Street Recreation Ground there will be improvements to the car park surface while Woodside Park will see a knee-rail around the perimeter of the park, to prevent unauthorised vehicle access.
Pathway improvements will also be made at Wordsley Park, Netherton Park and Grange Park.
Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for environmental, highways and street services, said:
Friends Groups and park users have told us that they would like to see accessibility and fencing improvements to their local parks and green spaces and we are delighted to be able to undertake improvements.
Work to improve the parks is expected to take place during the summer and people will be able to access them throughout the works.
