Grosvenor Park should be fully open in early June, bringing relief to regular users who have faced restrictions for many months.

A number of people on Twitter have commented about how long the £3.6m revamp is taking and the lack of access to the public during the work.

The discussion seems to have arisen because restrictions are at their height at the moment for health and safety reasons due to work upgrading pathways across large areas of the park.

But Cheshire West and Chester Council says the main entrance in Grosvenor Park Road is currently open, allowing access to the new children’s play area and miniature railway.

All the work had been expected to be finished by late spring but council spokeswoman Laura Johnson said the improvements would now be fully completed in June.

She added: “From Friday, March 7, Dee Lane entrances and the Boathouse entrance are to be re-opened. They have been open at weekends but not in the week. The Quarry garden and events area will re-open at the end of March.

“We are currently upgrading the pathways throughout the park and clear signage has been placed at all of the entrances advising visitors that access is being maintained through the main entrance.”

The refurbishment includes changes to the pond and improved play facilities plus the construction of a new training and events pavilion with toilets, internal remodelling and restoration, as well as an extension to the Grade ll listed Park Lodge to include a caf� and first floor meeting rooms for community use.
