Osgathorpe plans

Osgathorpe Plans

Story:Amie Rowland, Parks & Countryside

It’s a warm evening, the Park is packed with people. Kids playing in the playground, a cricket match going on, neighbours catching up, and a footy kick around on the grass.

It’s fantastic to see Osgathorpe Park so well used after all the hard work that has been put in by the Friends of Osgathorpe Park (FOOP) working with the Parks & Countryside Service. Footpath lighting, new trees, wildflower planting and artwork in the playground all help to make the park feel safer and cared for.

The next project that we're focussing on is the Active Play Zone (see plan, PDF belwo). We've spent lots of time consulting with youth groups, schools and other stakeholders in the area, and this plan consolidates what we've been told; that we need a space with improved surfacing that will cater for a variety of sports activities and a range of ages.

Whilst flood lighting is not seen as a priority, high fencing will protect the Earl Marshall Road residents from balls, and new terraced seating on the bank will allow people to watch the activities. The climbing boulder was an extremely popular element. We are actively seeking additional funding to enable this project to go ahead.

If you have any comments on this design please contact the Parks & Countryside Service on 273 6952, we are keen to hear from you.
