A PLAYFUL CONNECTION - A presentation by Area Landscape Architects and the Friends of North Lodge Park

7.30PM WEDNESDAY 17TH OCTOBER, CROMER COMMUNITY HALL, GARDEN STREET

Next year Cromer will celebrate the 90th birthday of North Lodge Park, opened to the public by Cromer Urban District Council in 1929 – the year of ‘Tiptoe Through the Tulips’, Ramsey MacDonald’s second government, and the Wall Street Crash.

To celebrate we are aiming to deliver a new bridge with play elements – a ‘playful connection’– linking the Upper Lawn with the main area of the park, providing a much-needed new connection, improving play facilities, and bringing the park together.

Come and find out more at the Community Hall this Wednesday 17th October at 7.30pm

A well-known Cromer artist and photographer pair are hoping their latest exhibition will - quite literally – raise the roof.

Playful Connection to bring the Park together

Developing the ideas which were well received at our March AGM, the landscape architects we are working with, AREA, have focused on the Upper Lawn. They have produced a practical plan for bringing the area into the rest of the Park with play elements - a ‘playful connection’- linking the Upper Lawn with the main area of the Park. This neatly provides a much-needed new bridge, providing play facilities, and brings the park together.

You are invited to join us in the Community Hall on Wednesday 17th October at 7.30pm to see the proposals and discuss the ideas with AREA. All being well with the design and funding, we would aim to implement the proposals next year.

This a major, positive step in what can sometimes feel a slow journey to develop the Park as people in Cromer have requested. We are pleased to have the support of North Norfolk District Council, and are proud of the proposals from AREA.
