Project Details: Extensive Earthworks, Mature and semi mature planting, installation of various pieces of park furniture such as bins, seats, shelters, lighting, fencing, steps, ball play area and a climbing wall.

The huge climbing wall rocks which you can see above were carefully put into place using cranes and have become a major feature of the Park.

Several floodlight football pitches were also constructed by Brambledown. The project also included a Multi Use Games area and Brambledown were responsible for its construction and maintenance for an initail period of time. The park was a major scheme for Stanley and Brambledown was proud to be involved at every stage of the construction process.
