A public consultation has been launched asking how people currently use Burley Park and how it could be improved.

Burley park has a range of facilities including a bandstand, cricket practice pitch, gym equipment, basketball court, tennis courts, bowling green and a playground.

Council parks chiefs have a consultation both online and in the park itself to encourage people to help shape its future.

Parks technical support officer Chris Megginson said: “Our aim is to set out a vision for each of our 65 community parks, to help us achieve our goal of providing the best parks in the UK. 

“To achieve this we would like to know what people think about their local parks and how we can make them better for everyone. I am aiming to gather input from as many people as possible and as well as individuals I would love to hear from any groups who use Burley Park or are based in the area.”

As well as the consultation being online, Mr Megginson will be in the park bandstand to talk to people in person on:

  • Thursday 24 August: 9am – Noon
  • Saturday 23 September: Noon – 3pm
  • Wednesday 4 October: 2pm—5pm

The online consultation will be live until 8 November and can be found here.
