The works at Almondvale Park were to improve the overall appearance of the area.

This involved removal of the existing hard and soft landscaping, and then installing new. The works were carried out throughout the entire park, but centred on 4no. existing picnic areas within the park area. 

The park remained open throughout the period of the project, so works had to be phased to maintain as much access for the public as possible. Working areas were fully fenced off to protect the public and all plant movements were controlled by a banksman.


We were aware of the need for their to be as little disruption as possible to park users whilst the work was being carried out.
