Park revamp moves ahead

Have your say

DETAILED proposals have been drawn up by Doncaster Council for the restoration of Bentley Park and its pavilion.

The work will be used to support a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the funding needed to deliver the improvement scheme.

The bid will be submitted by the end of August and, if successful, works could start in April 2012.

The masterplan would see extensive improvements and repairs to the pavilion offering better access, new catering facilities, a veranda and an area for outdoor events.

The scheme could also see better entrances to the park, renovated railings and gates, improved footpaths, new facilities for young people of all ages, new gardens including a restored lily pond with water fountain, seating areas, and feature lighting across the park.

It could also see a new bandstand built.
