New Pavilion is looking good

The eco-friendly building has been designed by local architects Bryant Priest Newman, and is central to the restoration of the park and will give the much needed facilities it has lacked over the past decades. The pavilion contract was awarded to J Harper & Sons, who are a local firm based in Sandwell.

It will have an office for the Park Manager and Park Ranger, a small cafe, events room, area to display exhibitions and best of all public toilets. There will be a walkway to the top of the building which will be a vantage point to view the park and the Sandwell Valley.

Security was the one of the first priorities for the restoration of the park and the new pavilion. This is being addressed with a security system and CCTV cameras on the pavilion and in the Avenue.

The building is due to be completed by the end of 2011 at a cost of £900K, and will be opened in the Spring.
