Restoration of Boston’s Central Park making progress after ground was ‘ruined’ by fair

Work is progressing to restore a popular park after it was ruined during an annual town fair. Boston Central Park was ripped up during the 2023 autumn fair which unfortunately coincided with Storm Babet in October.

At the time, Boston residents took to social media to express their dismay at the state of Central Park, with many questioning the decision to hold the fair during such adverse weather conditions. Boston Borough Council leader, Anne Dorrian, apologised for the damage done to the “beautiful” park and assured residents that the fair operators would be covering the expenses in full.

The overall costs of the repairs will not be confirmed until works are complete. A specific date has not been confirmed for the completion of the works, moving to the next phase, and deputy leader of the council, Councillor Dale Broughton, has apologised for the inconvenience.

He said: “We’re delighted to announce the commencement of Central Park’s restoration, with the completion of phases one and two. These included crucial tasks such as draining excess water, rotovating, powerharrowing, and overall levelling.

“The next phase, involving further levelling and seeding, awaits warmer weather conditions. We apologise for any inconvenience caused whilst the park is closed for these works to take place safely and assure residents that we’re committed to restoring Central Park to its former glory.”
