Lib Dem Councillors Claire Thomas and Abigail Bell have welcomed the news that the park at the former Tilbury School site has been opened to the public.
The park was created after the former Tilbury School site closed, and had originally been scheduled to open in June 2014.
Pickering ward’s Liberal Democrat Councillors Claire Thomas and Abigail Bell had been pushing for the Council to open the new park for some time.
Claire said: “It’s a shame that it has taken this long. The new park was meant to have been opened to the public a year ago. The Council still hasn’t made it clear why it took so long to address the drainage issue and open the park.
“It’s great that another area of green space is available in the area and I hope that people will enjoy the park now it is open.”
A competition for school children to name the new park is currently being run. The results are expected to be out in the near future.
