Why we're upgrading a path in Stoke Park, the outcome of the public consultation and what we'll do next.

What we’re doing 

We're improving an existing historic path in Stoke Park. The path will connect Lockleaze with Jellicoe Avenue at the eastern edge of the park. 

The work started in November 2021 and is expected to finish in the summer of 2022.

What it will look like

The path will be 3 metres wide.

It will initially look like a traditional black footpath.

Near the end of the project we will lay a specialist surfacing over the whole length of the path. This will look like natural stone.

This is an attractive, robust construction and it's expected to give many years of low maintenance life.

Why we want to improve the path

The all-weather path will:

  • be more accessible so that more people can easily use the park, such as cyclists and those with mobility scooters or pushchairs
  • give better access to the park for people living in the new housing being built in the area
