Park to enjoy revamp ahead of centenary

Have your say

A MAJOR revamp to bring a north Derbyshire park back to its former glory is set to begin.

Eastwood Park, Hasland, Chesterfield, is to be refurbished before its centenary in June.

Work begins on Monday, with new features to include a community garden, rose garden, wildlife area and new trees.

The park fountain will be restored and there will be a new multi-use games and play area, as well as other improvements.

Coun Chris Ludlow, Chesterfield Council member for the environment, said: “There will be demolition work from Monday which will involve heavy machinery being on site so the park will close – but only for four weeks. Once work is completed it will reopen, although there will be restricted access to certain areas while work continues.”

Work will be finished in time for the park’s centenary celebrations.
