Bridlington Gypsey Race Park and Avenue landscaping complete

THE latest offer to create more green spaces for the residents of a seaside resort has been completed.

Work on landscaping and creating more green space around the Gypsy Race in downtown Bridlington has taken another step forward with the completion of the latest leg.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has appointed Esh Construction as prime contractor for the project to redesign the banks of the watercourse along Hilderthorpe Road between Tesco and Springfield Avenues and adjacent to the Palace Car Park on the new Beck Hill Bridge, creating additional green space for people to enjoy and new To create habitats for wild animals.

New trees were planted and existing forests were managed with a new forest path.

The area now also includes new seating and a natural play area for children has been created to encourage an active lifestyle.

The second phase of Gypsey Race Park and Avenue received funding of £ 1,491,346 from the European Regional Development Fund under the European Structural and Investment Funds 2014-2020 Growth Program. The remainder of the investment in the £ 4.2 million project was funded by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

The project is an important part of Bridlington’s redevelopment plan and offers an attractive advantage to the Hilderthorpe Road development areas and the improved roads created by the Bridlington Integrated Transport Plan (BridITP2).

The first phase of the work included the creation of a flow equalization area with a viewing platform to deal with large amounts of water, as well as cleaning the river bed and improving the watercourse and banks.

Councilor Jane Evison, Portfolio Owner, Economic Growth and Tourism, said, “It is great to see Bridlington complete this transformation of this popular area.

“I would like to thank everyone involved and local residents for their patience and understanding as the project has inevitably been delayed recently, but now we have a completed project that we can be proud of for residents and visitors alike . ”
