Alvaston Park Lake Improvements Project

Environmental improvement works are taking place on Alvaston Park Lake starting Monday 10 September 2018 for approximately 4 weeks. The works will include relocating the Norfolk reed to the centre of the lake; increasing the marginal planting around the edge of the lake using rockrolls, preplanted coir rolls, relocating sediment to create a planting base and repairs to the concrete edges. 

The aim of the project is to improve water quality and attract wildlife by increasing oxygenating plants and creating new habitats to improve the visual appearance and preserve the structure of the lake.

Access will be restricted to certain parts of the lake and footpath diversions may be in place while the works are taking place. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The works are funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Our City Our River environmental enhancement scheme. #gfa18
