Dredging Part of Cherry Hinton Hall Improvements

Cherry Hinton Hall park could be in line for significant improvements following the publication of a report that recommends starting work on the second phase of a masterplan for the popular open space.

Among the objectives for the masterplan are reintegrating and re-landscaping an area of the hall grounds that has previously been inaccessible to the public.

Cambridge is rightly famous for its beautiful open spaces, which are valued by all sections of the community. It’s important that we continue to invest in them to ensure that facilities there meet people’s expectations and provide the setting for a variety of leisure activities,” said Cllr Carina O’Reilly, Executive Councillor for City Centre and Public Places.

Some of the park features set to be improved as part of the plan includes:

  • Removing vegetation from the front and rear of the hall to provide uninterrupted views of the building;
  • Improving the network of paths to allow for better accessibility for all users;
  • Installation of better park furniture;
  • Creating a permanent concession stand for refreshments and new toilets;
  • Creating wild flower meadows and planting new trees and plants;
  • Dredging the lake to enlarge the island, and increasing wildlife habitat with new planting.
