Work starts next week on Cadbury Heath’s new £500,000 Jubilee Park

Work is due to begin next Monday to create Cadbury Heath’s new £500,000 Jubilee Park at the former pitch and putt site.

The first phase of works, lasting 12 weeks, will involve widening the shared path, improving street lighting and estate railings. During this time half of the park, near Brereton Way, will have restricted access to ensure public safety.

A temporary accessible path will be built so people can still walk through the park.

The park marks the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and is also in memory of HRH Duke of Edinburgh and his interest in wildlife and nature.

Public feedback was invited on the design before Christmas. The park will be a thriving haven for wildlife and will include a community orchard, wildflower meadows, woodland garden of reflection and thousands of spring flowers including the late Queen’s favourite Lily of the Valley.

In a poll, locals chose the pitch and putt site as the best place, above Banjo Island and Tarzan Park.
