Together with our friends at Hardwick Park and Groundwork North East and Cumbria we are going to create a fun and exciting wooden sculpture trail.
Each of the carved sculptures will represent the wildlife found in our local area. The trail will lead visitors to discover all of the beautiful sites throughout Hardwick Park and take them to our new nature reserve – Bishops Fen.
Bishops Fen you ask? That’s our flagship project – a new wetland nature reserve just north of Hardwick Park, work has already started and we hope this will ready by the end of 2020 (click here to discover more)
Why Hardwick Park? Hardwick Park, run by Durham County Council, lies at the heart of Brightwater. The park was refurbished around 15 years ago and now has around half a million visitors each year; making it the Brightwater’s most visited outdoor family attraction. It is also a key access point into the Discover Brightwater landscape, and well because it’s a beautiful park! If you haven’t been you really should, make sure you practice safe social distancing at the moment though.
