New improvements at a popular green space have been unveiled as plans gather pace to revitalise the area.

Leavesden Green Recreation Ground now has a wider central path, designed to accomodate more people, and a gravel walkway to connect different areas of the park.

Watford Observer:

It comes amid plans to reduce mowing on the edges of the area and plant new trees later this year to boost biodiversity.

Watford mayor Peter Taylor said: “We are pleased to unveil the completion of these enhancements at Leavesden Green Recreation Ground, demonstrating our dedication to creating inclusive and accessible green spaces for the community.”

Watford Observer:

Cllr Tim Williams, Portfolio Holder for Parks, added: “The council is committed to making ecological improvements across the town.

“With a designated biodiversity area and new trees being planted, we are fostering a thriving ecosystem within the park, while improving air quality and providing habitats for various species.”

Seventeen of Watford's parks and green spaces have been awarded Green Flag status - an award given to the UK's best parks.
