Somerset Park opens

Story and photography by Osama Magdher Montfort

Burngreave has a new park. The former Catherine Street Open Space has been renamed and officially opened as Somerset Park after a public consultation. Members of the Burngreave TARA and staff from Arches Housing, joined children from Pye Bank C of E Primary School and local councillor, Ibrar Hussain, to plant hedges, trees, wildflowers and bulbs, and to place new seating, bins, signs and park entrance features.

Councillor Ibrar Hussain said, “This place used to be a mess, lots of people threw rubbish and it was full of fly-tipping.”
