Highfields Park improvement secures funding

January 7th, 2015

The University’s Highfields Park has been awarded funding as part of a £3.2 million development project to transform this historic area of campus.

The restoration work will be completed by the end of summer 2016, and will include:

  • de-silting the Highfields Park lake and improving the waterside boating area
  • restoring buildings, park infrastructure and horticultural landscape
  • a new adventure golf area
  • improving the children’s play area, and more

The funding for the project has been awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund’s Parks for People programme. Nottingham City Council and other funding partners have also contributed an additional £1.3 million. The University has pledged its full support for the project and will provide a further £350,000 in financial support for the project.
