Council Seeks Public Opinion On Future Of Local Park

Council Seeks Public Opinion On Future Of Local Park

What attractions and improvements would you like to see in Mansfield’s Berry Hill Park? 

That is the question Mansfield District Council is asking both current and potential park users. 

The council is set to receive £2.94m from the Towns Fund to create the district’s first destination park by improving existing facilities and creating new attractions not found elsewhere in Mansfield.

The funding is subject to Mansfield Place Board approving a business case, which will then be sent to the Government for confirmation. 

A destination park is an exciting and fun place for the whole family to spend the day with various activities suitable for all ages, from toddlers to teenagers and adults. 

A survey has been launched so people can give their views on a wide range of potential things to see and do at the park, which is off Lichfield Lane.

Ideas include a climbing wall/bouldering, model boating, high ropes, crazy golf, bike hire and cycling trails, a sensory garden, art trail, a multi-use games area, and a new play area for older children and children with physical disabilities.

 It is hoped the park could host more entertainment and events in the future and people are asked to comment on ideas ranging from live music, outdoor theatre and cinema, to family fun days, sports sessions and funfairs. 

 There is also the opportunity for people to make alternative suggestions to those listed, as well as give their thoughts on possible improvements to the café provision and seating, toilets and parking.   

Further information and the survey can be found at www.mansfield.gov.uk/berryhillpark.  

The results will be used to help create a masterplan, which is due to be published early next year.

Subject to obtaining the funding and relevant permissions, it’s hoped that improvement work could start as early as next year.
