DICK WHITTINGTON PARK RE-DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Our long awaited redevelopment- re-branding program is now at last underway.  The first phase of works involves the resurfacing of the driveway and completing the car park extension.

In late summer works will start for the massive Visitor Centre extensions and the new lake creation.  It will also see replacement of a lot of the existing equipment.

We have done our best to keep our regular visitors updated on our re-development project.  We are very grateful for their patience while changes are taking place and the interest being shown in what we are trying to achieve.  It is obviously disappointing to get criticisms whilst the re-branding is underway, but thankfully 99.99% of our visitors have shown great tolerance.
