Progress Update

The past weeks of hot and dry weather have been good for progress on the ground, but the rainfall today is also welcome to help the water levels in the ponds recover .

On Monday, path re-surfacing works commenced on a 100m length on the main path from the playground at Parliament Hill. The whole path up to Model Boating Pond is to be replaced, in 100m sections, as part of the project.
