To brighten-up Central Park, an avenue of multi-stemmed birch trees has been planted at the Tawney Street entrance.

To accompany this, an Art Deco inspired garden is planned to mark the forthcoming centenary of the Council’s purchase of Central Park in 1919. Featuring four decorative metal arches and fragrant low maintenance planting the garden has been designed by award-winning garden designer Jeni Cairns.

Improvements to the Central Park growing space are also planned involving the strengthening of the boundary fence, access improvements to some of the raised beds and creation of more areas for fruit trees.
