Take a walk to the Cauldon Grounds to see the amazing transformation
The first area of the park to be complete is the Cauldon Grounds next to Stoke-on-Trent College. The Hammersley Fountain is working and the flowerbeds are blooming. The gates have been fully restored, the paths replaced, the lodge painted and new benches installed to create a tranquil and beautiful place to sit and contemplate.
We are now really starting to see the amazing improvements taking place in the park.
The boathouse is nearing completion with the finishing touches being made to the balcony overlooking the lake and work is due to start soon to raise the path up to the door to allow access for wheelchairs.
The restoration of the terracotta balustrade in the terrace garden overlooking the canal is nearing completion.
The restored bandstand has returned to the park this week following restoration and is slowing being put back together on site piece by piece.
After many months, the main pavilion roof covering is finally being put back on, and the foundations are being put in for the new veranda posts to create a lovely outdoor seating area around the building.
