Budding gardeners brighten up Ryelands Park
Children from Lune Park Children's Centre in Ryelands Park
Budding gardeners descended on Ryelands Park this week to help Lancaster City Council add a splash of colour to the park with the planting of 1000 bulbs.
On Thursday, February 7, more than 30 children from Lune Park Children’s Centre worked alongside the council's Ground's Maintenance Team to plant anemone blanda bulbs as part of a masterplan to improve the look and feel of the park.
The bulbs were funded by community charity - Groundwork.
The children and visitors to the park can now look forward to seeing the results of their hard work come into bloom later this year.
Local volunteers have also been busy undertaken other improvement works to the park by clearing paths and work is also continuing to provide a safe and exciting play facility which is scheduled to open in time for the summer.

Coun David Smith, Cabinet member with responsibility for Environmental Services, said: “It's great that so many children enjoyed working alongside council staff to help make something special happen in their park this year.
"There is a fantastic amount of work taking place in Ryelands Park and everyone who has volunteered so far to help shape its future for the benefit of those living in their local community and beyond should be rightly proud of what has already been achieved."
