Hedgemead Park needs ‘friends.’

Things are looking up for Bath’s Hedgemead Park with a number of improvements now  completed by Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Parks Team.

The bandstand has been repaired and repainted, with work now finished.

The old shelter is in the process of being fixed with new shingle on the roof, the retaining wall being repaired and new railings around the shelter to provide better visibility.

Work to resurface the play area has also been completed by the Council, in partnership with Wessex Water.

Jane Robson, Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Parks Manager, said: “We have been working hard to carry out a number of improvements to Hedgemead Park as we know local people and users place great value on this excellent community facility.”

The Council’s Parks Team is also attempting to establish a Friends of Hedgemead Park group. A meeting is taking place on Wednesday 10 May at The Crypt, St Swithin’s Church, Paragon, Bath, from 7pm, with anyone interested in the future of the park is welcome to come along.
Jane added: “We hope that establishing friends groups at many of our parks across Bath and North East Somerset will encourage greater use and involvement in shaping their future.”
