Achieving Results in Communities

Packington Place Pocket Park

ARC supports people to access and engage with the outdoors for their mental and physical health and wellbeing.
We have received funding to create a “pocket park” at Packington Place, off High Street, Leamington (between Ladbrokes and the Jewellers). Working in partnership with Open Spaces Group we plan to transform this small area of Old Town over the coming few months.
The outline of the proposal is to improve the flower beds incorporating mosaic seating, hanging baskets and small trees to create a pleasant place to relax for a moment whilst out shopping or errands.
We would like to know your views on this proposal, and to find out how you would like to be involved.
What sort of plants would you like to see and could you help with planting? Would you like to create the mosaic artwork? Would you like to help maintain the site in future?
Fill in the survey by the 19th February 2016 to make your comments: the site looks like this:Packington Place BEFORE
