Sturry Road Community Park has been created from an 18 hectare site previously used as a landfill refuse tip behind the Park and Ride Car Park in Sturry Road just outside Canterbury. Restoration involved importing surplus soil from local development sites, levying a tipping charge, and using the funds to pay for the development of the park. The creation of the park has transformed a sterile, forgotten wasteland into a new park for people and wildlife. Over 10,000 native trees and shrubs have been planted to effectively create a green edge to the City and strengthen the green gap between Canterbury and Sturry. The whole park is available for everyone to use. There really is something for everyone – play facilities for all ages, ornamental garden, sports pitch, BMX track, multi-games court, skateboard park, event arena, a mile long circular walking route, jogging, cycling and exercise trails linked to the Canterbury to Fordwich cycle/walking route, newly planted amenity woodland and an ecological park with wildflower meadow.
