District's parks set for facelift

PARKS across the district are set for a facelift and Warwick District Council is urging residents to have their say on the plans.

The proposals include updating children’s play equipment, extending footpaths and improving biodiversity and the health of the trees at Ebourne Recreation Ground and Bates Memorial Park in Kenilworth, the Holt in Lillington and Shrublands – also known as Ford’s Field – in Leamington.

Green Spaces team leader David Anderson said: “I am very pleased to see the start of significant improvement programmes for these much loved parks.

“This investment will give our communities safer and more accessible open spaces to enjoy this summer and for many years to come.”

And WDC are holding public drop in sessions for residents wanting to find out more about the schemes and have their say on the improvement plans.

People can see The Holt plans at Lillington Free Church, Cubbington Road in Lillington from 5pm to 8pm on Tuesday April 18; the Ebourne Recreation Ground and Bates Memorial Park plans at St John’s Church, Warwick Road in Kenilworth from 4pm to 8pm on Wednesday April 19; and Shurblands plans’ at Westbury Centre, Westlea Road in Leamington from 5pm to 8pm on Thursday April 20.
