Gypsey Race Park

 

Gypsey Race Park will be a green haven along the Gypsey Race stream which runs through the town centre.  Gypsey Race Park will provide pleasant walking and cycling routes, play areas and improved habitats for wildlife.  The project is an important part of Bridlington's regeneration plans and will provide an attractive edge for the development sites and the improved streets being created through the second phase of the Bridlington Integrated Transport Plan.

 

The first part of the park will be built in 2017, adjacent to Hildethorpe Road Coach Park. This will see the river, its banks and the surrounding area cleared of debris before being landscaped and planted.  New paths and seating will be created for people to sit and enjoy the green space and areas will be managed for local wildlife, with viewing areas so people can discover more about the natural world.  The area's heritage will also be celebrated through the erection of new signs that will tell the stories behind people who have worked and lived along the Gypsey Race.

 

An exhibition event was held at The Spa Bridlington on 20 September 2016 where members of the public met with officers from the town's Renaissance Team and landscape designers from Sweco.  Comments received were very positive, with some of the comments being incorporated by the scheme designers into the final plan, which will be submitted for planning approval at the end of September 2016.
