Bute Park Restoration
The project helped to tell the story of the park and provided local people with a place to enjoy, to learn about and to feel a part of. Alongside improving the visual appearance of the park, Cardiff Council have developed skills through an apprenticeship scheme which provided opportunities to undertake a wide range of grounds maintenance and horticultural operations, as well as a professional qualification.
People were involved throughout the project’s lifespan: through consultation, research, art competitions, school visits, family events, training courses and the development of a friends group.
More information can be found on the Bute Park website.
Cllr Huw Thomas, Cabinet Member for Sport, Leisure and Culture, observed:
“This is another stem of the Bute Park Restoration Project which continues to enhance our wonderful city centre park as a place of freedom, recreation and enjoyment by all.”
