Fresh look at plans for Watford's Cassiobury Park
Plans to revamp Cassiobury Park have been redesigned after the public had their say on them.
Watford Borough Council said it went back to the drawing board after publicly displaying its ambitions for a £5 million restoration of the popular park.
The authority is currently bidding for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund to help realise the project.
The council says it wants to restore the Cassiobury, which used to be a deer park for the aristocracy, to its former glory.
Among the planned improvements are the restoration of the bandstand, refurbish the Cha Cha Cha cafe, a revamp of the paddling pools and new changing rooms.
Residents are now being invited to cast their eye over the revised plans for the park.
Matt Hill, Project Officer, said: "Please do have a look at our revised plans and watch the video. We’ve provided some information about the hub building, including some more detail on the lovely, natural materials which could be used in the design, which you told us you wanted to see. The hub building will replace the eight small buildings that currently sit around the paddling pools and play area."
"We have exciting plans for the popular pools too - these will be improved with more fun water features for children, which better reflect the surroundings - drawing on the adjacent River Gade for inspiration."
This part of the consultation is open until Friday, September 6. You can view the draft proposals and complete a short online survey here.
