Plans for £180k improvements to The Rally park


PEOPLE are being asked for their views on plans to revamp a popular park close to Leicester’s Waterside regeneration area.

The Rally park, which sits between Tudor Road and The River Soar, could see around £180,000 invested in a range of proposed improvements. These include a raised seating area, new landscaping with flowering lawns, improvements to the Tudor Road entrance and a new multi-use ball court.

If given the go-ahead, the proposed improvements will be funded entirely by Section 106 developer contributions. Work could begin in the autumn.

Deputy City Mayor Cllr Piara Singh Clair, who leads on culture, leisure and sport, said: “The Rally is a popular park but would benefit from a revamp and improvements to some facilities.

“We’ve drawn up some exciting proposals and we’re now asking people who live in the area and use the park to let us have their comments on the plans.”

Leaflets have been delivered to households in the local area asking for views on the proposals.
