Ladysmith Park will soon be starting works on site, and will be ready to open its doors to local residents in Easter 2018. The pocket park, which is situated near the brand new Meridian Angel Primary School at Ladysmith Road, has been designed by local residents, community groups and schools alongside the Council.

The Council has also been working with local schools, colleges and employment support services to ensure Meridian Water is offering job opportunities for local residents, with young people offered paid internships to build benches and picnic tables for the park.

Local children will also be invited to participate in art workshops run by street artists to design the finished look of the park.
