At the western end of the pool the retaining wall is in a very poor state of repair in several locations. In other places it has been damaged by self set trees which have not been managed.
The islands in the central areas of the pool are badly eroded, and the water quality is very poor.
The density of the vegetation restricts views into this area from other parts of the park and has no visual connection with the rest of the park.
The proposed work to the pool involves managing the fish stocks, removal of silt through dredging, lowering the water level to allow works to the edges, replacing the railings, repairing the model boat launch and new planting.
