Entrance – rebuild

Anyone using or passing by the park cannot fail to notice the building work going on at the main entrance.  Due to the poor state of the walls and pillars they are being knocked down and rebuilt.  The plan is to make them as close to the original as possible.

The work is being carried out by Probuild.  A local company who are doing a great job.  They were awarded the job through competitive tendering, organised by Conwy County Borough Council.

This collection of pictures shows why the entrance needed rebuilding.  There were large cracks in the walls and the pillars were leaning.  A lack of decent foundations seemed to be the cause.
