A series of artists impressions have been unveiled that show a new look for Boultham Park in 2017.

New features and improvements will include:

  • Cafe
  • Education centre
  • A depiction of the footprint of the old Boultham Hall, which was on the site until 1959
  • Restoration of the bandstand
  • Restoration of the fountain garden
  • Restoration of the bridges and sun dial
  • Improved lighting
  • CCTV
  • New signs
  • New park furniture

The Boultham Park Restoration Project is led by learning disability charity Linkage, in partnership with the City of Lincoln Council.

Caroline Bird, Community Services Manager said: “This is one of the most exciting years in the history of Boultham Park, and by the end of it we will have a park that everyone in the city can enjoy and be proud of.

“Work is currently underway on the groundworks for the café and glasshouse, and those buildings will start to take shape soon. The restoration of the stable block, which will become an education centre, has now started.”

Mark Commons, Head of Business Development and Marketing at Linkage added:
“These newly released images provide an exciting look into the future of these wonderful facilities.”
