Plans for a new “super park” in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, have been revealed.
Buttermere Park, in the Nicolas Park area of town, will be transformed under the plans.
The council put out plans for the transformation out to public consultation last summer and received more than 300 responses, many of which have been used to form the final plan for the park.
Paths will also be widened so that they can cater for prams, pushchairs, wheelchairs and dog walkers. The new path network will link the park to the new housing development, as well as other routes locally. There are also proposals for wildflower meadow, as well as around 45 new trees, all new seating and bins.
Councillor Julian Gutteridge, Cabinet Member, told Coventry Live: “This super park will set the standard for our parks and also for the next generation. We want it to be inclusive for all, that is so important, we want everyone to be able to use it.”
The plans will be debated at a cabinet meeting on 1 February and, if approved, the contract should then go out to tender in April.
The work, which is expected to take a minimum of three months, is set to be carried out in phases so people have access to some parts of the old park. The hope is for the new look park to be ready by the end of the next financial year.
