Workington ‘Environment Park’
Such a park would attract visitors from Keswick and beyond for a day visit and spending at shops and cafes in the town centre could make the town more prosperous.
We already have a good structural basis for an Environment Park…
We have an attractive rural area on the outskirts of the town including the wooded Hall Park and the Mill Field with the attractive River Derwent and the spectacular Yearl weir. The paths already exist and the whole area could be developed along with the impressive Curwen Hall acting as a focus. It would be a hub for walks and free maps could be provided here to direct tourists to points of interest in the town.
Curwen Hall could include an Environment room, a Historical room, Art installations, cafe, workshops with demonstrations etc. There could be a sculpture park, stone circle reconstructions, zip wire, mountain bike trail etc.
