    Lightbulb Park for 08?

    I don't know about anyone else but I would love to see a new city centre park created for CoC year. As much as all the development is good, there is less and less open space.
    I would like to see the council clear a large piece of land somewhere in the city centre and create a brand new open space, managed by the council with some sort of central feature to commemorate 08.
    We desperately need new open spaces in the city centre and it's something I feel very strongly about. I know we have the new chavasse park but this is privately managed and will be full of shoppers.
    Whilst on the subject of parks, I would also like to see everton park refurbished. This could be a great park and has some of the best views of the city centre

    I love the Parks there.. It was loverly to sit at Chavesse Park and listen to the concerts during August Festivals.. Has Sefton Parks conservation project (relocating birds etc. to Calderstone) finish yet?

    I definitely agree here.. All cities need some green tranquility for lunch times and just anytimes to enjoy a relax... Any projects coming up there AK1?

    South Liverpool is blessed with many parks and other green areas. They've created what must be the best playground for kids (location) at Otterspool.

    Not that I know of. I am going to write to the council regarding everton park and to the culture company regarding a park for 08.
    I will get back to you when I hear something.

    I have had a response from the council regarding Everton park. They have informed me that there are plans in place for the refurbishment of the park to coincide with 'Project Jennifer'. The plans include:

    - New housing around periphery of the park
    - New cycling routes across park and improved transport links
    - General improvements to the park
    - Creation of artwork/visitor attraction on Everton Brow
    - A current assesment of how the park contributes to the wider aspects of health and economic regeneration.

    All sounds very promising! I'm still waiting for a response regarding a new park for 08. Will keep you informed.
