Bandstand in full swing

conducting

The new Bandstand is on the exact site of the original Victorian Bandstand

Original Victorian Bandstand

Upper and lower pools looking splendid

 

A toddlers' play area has been added close to the pavilion, which includes waterplay and splashpad area has been added to the main play area.

Lighting has been installed on a pathway through the Park from the main avenue to the Sandwell Valley.

All the paths have been resurfaced. New paths have been introduced in the Arboretum and several others re-routed.


The old Depot has become a car park and the old car park on Reform Street has been landscaped to form a new boundary with Reform Street. A boundary wall has been constructed behind the existing footpath and there is a new pedestrian entrance in the corner nearest to the town centre. This brings the Park much closer to the town centre. The photograph below shows the new Park entrance with the town centre in the background.

 

       

The photographs above show the lighting and the restored boundaries to the park, the new replica drinks
fountain, new benches, pavilion, pavilion viewing tower, children's play area, Sensory Garden and the waterplay area.
