Public Open Spaces
A series of attractive public squares and open spaces will be created on the site, including: a new Country Park with ponds, a new 2.3 km woodland walk, Wetland Nature Conservation with attenuation areas, a new children’s play area, to provide significant outdoor amenity for the local community.
Public rights of way
Phase Two will improve existing public rights of way and provide new pathways, offering pedestrian and cycling opportunities, directly linking the town with the countryside to the immediate south. Existing linkages are of poor quality or too remote for walkers from the town, and the existing main car park for Black Down off Tennyson’s Lane is often full. Scotland Park will become an accessible alternative base for outdoor recreational activity including dog walking within the town, relieving pressure from the local Recreation Ground and more ecologically sensitive areas, such as Hindhead Commons Special Protected Area.
