Project Update December 2016
In early January we plan to start work on restoring Thomas Mawson’s design for Russell Gardens by removing overgrown shrubs and self-sown trees.
We will need to close some or all of Russell Gardens for short periods to allow the contractor to work safely and to ensure the safety of park users. For your safety, please follow instructions on signs or from members of staff. The work is likely to take two to three months.
We may also need to remove the play equipment to provide access for heavy machinery and vehicles, but it will be replaced as part of the main improvement works. The chippings and timber created as part of this first phase of work will be processed and mostly re-used as biomass fuel.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused while the work takes place.
