Doncaster Council and its appointed design team leader, Southern Green Limited, are inviting people to a special design workshop at Bentley Pavilion in Bentley Park on Wednesday 17th April between 2.00pm and 6.30pm.
The design team will use the feedback to help shape final designs for the revamp of Bentley Park and its Pavilion.
Work on the £3m project, which has attracted a £2.5million Heritage Lottery Fund grant, is expected to start in late autumn 2013 and be completed in summer 2014.
The Pavilion will benefit from a complete overhaul that offers better access, new catering facilities, a veranda and an area for outdoor events.
The park entrances will be improved, the railings and gates renovated, footpaths upgraded and new gardens created including a water fountain.
There will be new seating areas, better lighting across the park and a new bandstand for outdoor performances.
Cllr Cynthia Ransome, Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for Communities, said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for people to shape the transformation of Bentley Park into a wonderful setting that the whole community can enjoy and benefit from.
‘The plans will see the restoration of some lost historic features and provide a range of new attractions.
‘The park is an important green space in the heart of Bentley and has played a key role in the lives of residents for 90 years. This project will enable even more people to enjoy the park for celebrations and events or as a place to relax or have a stroll.’
Cllr Charlie Hogarth, Ward Member for Bentley, said: ‘It’s very important that people get involved with the consultation to influence the future of Bentley Park. It’s brilliant that progress is being made on this project.’
