Pocket Park Planned For Newark

The Newark and Sherwood District Council will be unveiling a pocket garden in the Nottinghamshire town of Newark. Read on to find out more about the plans.

Features will include purple haze meadows, trees, flower beds and a rain water feature.

This is part of a plan to redevelop land next to Library Gardens in London Road. It will become a peaceful community space. They also want to create areas that are suitable for disabled gardening groups.

The park will be suitable for all, and a family-friendly space to take the children for a stroll or a picnic. It should be a space that offers biodiversity and education right in the heart of the town centre.

It will be a gated garden, so won’t be accessible 24 hours a day. However, it will be open during daylight hours.

Repairs to Newark Castle

In other Newark news, funding was approved for repairs to the castle.

Being 900 years old, Newark Castle is a historical highlight of the East Midlands. The castle played a significant role in the English Civil War and saw the death of King John.

There will be £500,000 of repair funding. The money will be used to prevent further decay and ensure the safety of visitors. As one of the finest castles in England, the local council wants to preserve the monument as best they can.
