Clifton Park revamp in final stages

Have your say

A BRAND-NEW garden house has opened in Rotherham’s Clifton Park, just in time for the arrival of sunny weather.

The new facility is one of the final stages of the multi-million pound restoration of the popular park.

Located close to the grade II* listed Clifton Park Museum, the new garden house will offer a wide range of facilities, including a bowls pavilion, toilets, reception and a base for park rangers and gardeners.

The park project has already seen the completion of a state-of-the-art water play area, improved footpath network and restored gardens, fountains, bandstand and was memorial.

The scheme has been funded by a £4.5 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund.

The council’s green spaces manager, Phil Gill, said: “Clifton Park now boasts a unique and exciting blend of heritage and contemporary features.”
