On Friday 27 April the Friends of Preston Park attended an event to mark the completion of work on the cascades in the rock garden. In blazing sunshine the Deputy Mayor, Geoff Wells, local councillors, volunteer gardeners and even schoolchildren who helped on the project were there. Also present were, of course, the park staff, including rock garden manager Andy Jeavons and Park Ranger Manager Garry Meyer, whose hard work and determination made the repairs possible. The cascades looked really beautiful but sadly it was thought politic to switch off the cascades until the end of the current water restrictions. We’ll look forward to seeing the cascades in action again.
