A bandstand, all-weather table tennis tables and outdoor gym equipment could all be part of a new and improved Happy Mount Park.

Park owners Lancaster City Council has unveiled these and other ideas in a brand new vision for the popular park in Bare.

Now residents have been invited to have their say on the ‘Happy Mount Park Masterplan’.

The masterplan also suggests the park could be given extra toilets, more seats and possible changing facilities at the Splash Park, standardised benches and bins, and changes to the layout of trees.

Upgrades to the Japanese Garden, Woodland Walk, mini railway and adventure play area are also being mooted.

Friends of the park and council officers will host a consultation event on Sunday, August 3 between 2.30pm and 4.30pm near the putting green.

Visitors to the event will be able to view a draft masterplan developed by the project group following consultation with leaseholders, bowlers, police, councillors, park visitors, and the park’s volunteer group.

“The aim of the masterplan is to identify where there are opportunities for further improvement and develop an action plan for the future of the park over the next 20-30 years,” said Councillor David Smith.

Funding for improvements could be sought from the lottery or Government initiatives.
