Works to create a new park for Glasthule are currently underway. This green space was used by local schools as playing fields and was enclosed behind a large impermeable concrete wall. The proposed development consists of a sports pavilion, pitches, ball stop netting, paths, seating, boules, play and outdoor exercise equipment, sensory garden, landscaping and boundary treatment.
Phase 1 works are nearing completion consisting of the re-grading of the grass area to create high quality playing fields, perimeter paths and a new boundary plinth and railing along Hudson Road. These works are due for completion in late 2018 and the park will then be open to the public. The playing fields will not be ready for play until Autumn 2019 at the earliest.
Detailed design for phase 2 which will lead to the completion of the project is on-going with works scheduled to commence in 2019.
