Hertfordshire park secures £70,000 funding for improvements

Money has been secrued for the transformation of an important park.

Funds totalling £70,000 have been ring-fenced to transform a Hertfordshire urban park. Aberford Park, in Borehamwood, will become home to a football pitch, café, picnic area and improved play area under new council plans. Hertsmere Borough Council has approved the improvements, which will now go to public consultation until 13 April. Council communications manager Catherine Feast said contractors and bidders would be sought for the work once general ideas have been agreed. She said: “We are trying to maintain it in keeping with our other parks and the things that people have praised in those parks.” Proposals include widening the road entrance and improving other entrances, relocating the toddlers’ play area, installing better play equipment and planting trees in an orchard area. Feast said that when the work is complete the park will apply for Green Flag status.
