Green space improved for wheelchair users
WARMLEY Forest Park has been given a £50,000 makeover in order to make it more accessible for wheelchair users.
The improvements include a 348 metre path suitable for wheelchairs and those with special mobility needs, as well as facilities for cyclists at Warmley station to help those visiting via the nearby Bristol to Bath Railway path.
The work was carried out by South Gloucestershire Council following an award by the Cory Environmental Trust in Britain in 2011, and with the participation of the South Gloucestershire Disability Action Group.
Other improvements carried out included work to make the adjacent car park more accessible to service users with mobility and other special needs.

Chair of South Gloucestershire Council's Communities Committee, councillor Claire Young said: "Warmley Forest Park is an excellent example of the green spaces that make South Gloucestershire such a great place to live and work.
"Thanks to the kind support of Cory Environmental Trust in Britain it is also now more accessible to all members of the community.
"I encourage local people to see the improvements for themselves and to enjoy the many benefits that the Forest Park has to offer."
