Continued improvements at Gedling Country Park

Alert message sent 15/11/2019 16:27:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire

Gedling Country Park has expansive views spanning into Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, which will now be enhanced thanks to two viewing platforms, one of which will be four metres high.
The platforms, which will be installed to the north and south of the solar panel farm at the park, will both feature wheelchair and pushchair accessible ramps and interpretation panels with information about the views beyond the platforms such as Lincoln Cathedral and Belvoir Castle.
The £120k funding for the platforms was awarded by the Rural Payments Agency, who provide grants for projects which help promote growth, jobs and tourism in rural areas.
Work on the new viewing platforms is due to start later this year and is expected to be ready for visitors to use and enjoy, alongside the many other facilities the park has to offer, by March 2020.
Since opening in March 2015, the park has become increasingly popular, with around 100,000 visitors per year, with many attracted by the family friendly events, wildlife conservation projects and heritage of the site.
To help with the increasing number of visitors to the park, it was announced earlier this year that the car park at the country park would be extended by 100 places and a new £73k covered seating area outside the park's café, Café 1899, will also be installed.
