Planting at Papdale Park

Although it is still very much under construction, you can see how bonnie the planting at the Community Park at Papdale is already.

And this seating is like a piece of outdoor sculpture.

The community park is for all ages and abilities. When complete there will be a network of paths and cycle ways. The planting will fill out and the choices of plants, shrubs and trees is excellent.

The Papdale Park Project received funding from the Scottish Government’s Nature Restoration Fund through the allocation which was given to Orkney Islands Council. It also received money through the Scottish Government funded Biodiversity Challenge Fund (via Nature Scot); Sustrans’ Places for Everyone (via Transport Scotland); Cycling, Walking and Safer Routes (via Transport Scotland); and money from Orkney Islands Council. Phase One of the project cost £670,000.
