RESIDENTS are being invited to find out more about the Heritage Lottery Fund plans for improving the landscape in the Town Park this Sunday (5 October 2014) by taking part in a guided walk around the park.

The £2.8m restoration project will see footpaths, gardens, two new avenues of trees and views across the park created along with the restoration of the Water Garden pond, an improved Bandstand, new café and a revamped Pets’ Corner.

Landscaping works as part of the project are due to start in October 2014. The walk will include information on the planting of new trees and the removal of old trees in the park. The walk will start from the School Lane Car Park at 2pm and finish at 3.30pm and will be led by the Town Park Volunteer and Education Officer Mike Levett.

Councillor Tony Durcan, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration & Enterprise, said: “The restoration of the Town Park will be a fantastic project for Harlow. The Town Park is a much-loved public space but we think Harlow deserves a better Town Park. The £1.8m funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the other money the Council has secured will help to do just that.

“The landscaping works are the first stage of the project. We realise that there may be some concerns about trees being removed and the walk is residents chance to find out more about what is planned and how the park will improve. A large number of trees being removed are in poor condition and we will be planting more trees than we are removing to help create a better park.”
