Western Park Completes at Llanwern, South Wales
17th August 2015
The Western Park is the first of three proposed parks at the Glan Lynn Development which is situated in Llanwern, Newport, South Wales. The overall regeneration project will transform the former 600 acre steelworks site into a new community delivering 4,000 new homes and will also include various commercial projects. The Western Park measuring just over 9 acres will provide open space, structured landscaping, play features and sports and recreational facilities for local residents. Over 80 acres of public open space will be created over the life of the regeneration project.
The Park was commenced in October 2012 and was implemented and completed in several phases with a number of specialist contractors. The park has been allowed to establish over a number of planting seasons prior to it formally being opened to the public on Wednesday 12 August 2015.
