Arcadia Park : How It Has Grown

Today, Saturday 24th of September, Arcadia Park, is officially opened. All of us who have watched the development of this park located across the road from the new Balfour Hospital in Kirkwall, have marvelled at the work the volunteers have put into it.

The park is there for all to enjoy, including wildlife. Its design is imaginative, not just in its planting which encourages children to explore and wildlife to thrive, but with artwork. A series of new sculptures have been funded by the Sustrans Artroots fund. So pop along at 2pm on Saturday for the opening . The volunteers have put in an incredible amount of work and will continue to do so as the park evolves and grows.
