First phase of restoration of historic garden complete

A ceremony to mark the 'phase one' completion of regeneration work at Penrith's Coronation Garden taking place.

The Penrith Rotary Club, along with Eden District Council have carried out the work, with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund, who provided £170,00 worth of funding.

The garden features four artwork sculptures which local primary schools helped design, together with plaques set into a footpath, forming a historic timeline.

Eight historical banners will also be displayed on flagpoles.

The ceremony will be opened by the chairman of Eden District Council who will cut the ribbon at 10am.

The Penrith Coronation Garden is situated on Portland Place at the rear of the Town Hall.
