Residents, businesses and visitors are being invited to events to learn more about improvements to one of Hull’s popular parks.
Major changes are planned to improve parking and access within East Park.
As part of the proposals, the main gates to East Park will reopen to motorists (in-line with existing park opening times) creating increased parking, the introduction to a one-way system from the main gates across the front of the park along with new footpaths and new access arrangements for motorists from James Reckitt Avenue to the model boat pond.
In addition to this, there will also be new safety measures implemented to coincide with the introduction of Martyn’s Law.
Plans will be on display for people to find out more about the planned work at Woodford Leisure Centre, Holderness Road from Monday 4 to Sunday 10 December. Drop in events are also taking place on Monday 4 December, 2 – 7pm and Sunday 10 December, 10am – 4pm, for anyone who has any questions or provide feedback.
Councillor Rob Pritchard, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said: “East Park is a popular space and attracts thousands of visitors a year.
“As a result of feedback from residents within the surrounding area, these outline proposals have been designed to improve access and the connectivity for visitors.
“These events are for those who want to learn more about the proposed changes taking place in the early 2024 and what these improvements will mean to them. The council wants to do what it can to ensure everyone is safe and enjoys their time within the park.”
Work is expected to take place in early 2024.
