How it all began ….
The Friends of Eaglesfield Park was set up in 2006 following a public meeting of local residents and park users who shared enthusiasm to be involved with the future development of the park. A working committee was formed and after further extensive consultation it was established that the number one priority was to bring the pond back to life. In fact many people were not aware that there was a pond in Eaglesfield Park as it had become so overgrown, drained of water and somewhat of an eyesore. Restoring the pond would encourage a wider array of wildlife, opportunities for nature studies, increased visitors and help reduce anti-social behaviour.
