New Look for Meanwood Park

Meanwood Park which forms part of a Leeds nature reserve is set to receive a major cash injection for a range of improvements.
The park, which forms part of the popular Meanwood Valley Nature reserve, is set to receive a £95k make-over thanks to local Councillors, including Sharon Hamilton, who have campaigned to secure funding for the project.
The plans outline major improvements to the tennis courts and bowling green, along with the installation of new seating areas, fencing and a heritage design to be placed at the entrance of the park which will feature the parks original gateposts and the Oates stone and cross.
Councillor Sharon Hamilton is delighted with the improvement plans, which she says are long overdue.
Councillor Sharon Hamilton (Moortown) said:
"These improvements and new features at Meanwood Park are a really welcome piece of good news for the area. This is one of the largest and most popular parks in Leeds, with a range of play and recreation facilities for children of all ages, not to mention its close links with the Meanwood Valley Nature Reserve. It is therefore only right that the facilities there are of a high standard in line with other similar parks.
"I am absolutely delighted that we have finally managed to secure the funding and agree on the action to be taken here. In addition to all these fantastic improvements, we are also looking to try to make some improvements to the car park, which is in need of re-surfacing."
