Lichfield City Council & Lichfield District Council were delighted to open the newly restored Minster Pool Walk on Friday 15 July 2011.

The area has undergone a complete transformation as part of the city's multi-million pound project to restore key historic parks.  

Work included dredging the pool, reinforcing the pool's bank, installing new railings, seats and benches, and creating a new Speakers' Corner. New trees have also been added to the ancient avenue of Limes and up-lighters have been installed at the base of the trees, creating a beautiful night time vista.  

Councillor Terry Finn, Leader of Lichfield City Council who own and manage Minster Pool Walk, explained: "I am delighted that Pool Walk is now open again. The quality of the restoration work to this popular area is outstanding. It will be a great boost to the city and I am sure it will be appreciated for many years to come."

There are still a few finishing touches to be made to Minster Pool Walk and the gardens, as Cllr Neil Roberts, Lichfield District Council's Cabinet Member for Development Services, explained: "We still have a few finishing touches to make, including improving the planting, which we'll do in the autumn, as well as installing historic information signs."

Work to improve Minster Pool and Walk was carried out as part of Lichfield District Council and Lichfield City Council's multi-million pound project to transform key historic parks in Lichfield, which also includes the Garden of Remembrance and Beacon Park.  

The works were possible thanks to £3.919 million funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund, as part of their Parks for People programme.
