Ambergate Recreation Ground improvements set to begin

Published on Tuesday 22 September 2020

Contractors have been appointed by Amber Valley Borough Council to undertake the first phase of £90,000 improvement works to Ambergate Recreation Ground, this autumn.


Pictured at Ambergate Recreation Gound is Councillor Paul Lobley, Member for Heage & Ambergate.

The project will consist of a large-scale re-profiling of the grass area to significantly reduce the water logging that occurs on site, to make the park more usable throughout the year. 

Also included in the first phase of works is a crushed stone perimeter path, which will enable the full extent of the park to be used by all park visitors, including those with reduced mobility. 

The works are due to commence by early October and are anticipated to take 3 to 4 weeks to complete, which may necessitate a closure of the park for a short period. The Council apologies in advance for any short-term inconvenience caused.
 
The second £50,000 phase of the works is due to be completed before the end of March 2021 and will see a major refurbishment of the children’s playground to cater for a wide range of age and abilities.
 
Councillor John McCabe, Cabinet Member for Environment commented: “I am delighted that we are able to start work on this exciting scheme of improvements to Ambergate Recreation Ground. There could be some very short-term disruption, but I’m sure local residents will agree with me that the end result will far outweigh this.”
