Local residents have long been aware of the need for better access to the park at the Salmon Pool Lane end, for people in wheelchairs or with pushchairs. The path was steep and had steps. It is a matter then of great celebration that the path has been completely changed by the city council and should now be accessible to all.
Jill says: “This park is a beautiful space for local residents to enjoy. There are lovely views of the river and beyond. It is especially fortunate now that it is open to everyone and I hope residents will make the most of this local resource. The city council is to be congratulated on the work that has been done here.”
Henry added, “Belle Isle Park is a hidden gem within our city and it’s a shame that due to poor access facilities not everyone can use it. With the completion of the ramp and an extra footpath soon to be opened more residents will be able to enjoy the beautiful park.”
