Ely’s award winning Country Park is now easier to access thanks to a new gateway which has been installed.
 
The Springhead Lane entrance now has a new gate design and the loose stones along the path have been swept helping to make the surface much sturdier underfoot.
 
This work has created improved access for wheelchair users and pushchairs following consultation with local access groups and users of the Park.
