This riverbank park was built to commemorate Lola Silcock, who was instrumental in starting the Cambridge Tree Trust.  After the Great Amalgamation of 1989, maintenance of the parks around Cambridge was neglected, and Lola was very concerned about it.  She called a meeting of like-minded people, and the CTT was born in 1991.

What is now the park was a dumping ground for industrial waste, including blocks of concrete, steel, and truck tyres. The vegetation was a mixture of gorse, blackberry, assorted exotic trees and shrubs, all held together with convolvulus.  The slides below give a good idea of what the whole area was like when we started work on it, and the effect we have had.

With the aid of Paul Garland's earth-moving machinery, the park area was cleared and planting began.  The project was started in 2008 and is planned to last 5 years, though there will be a need for on-going maintenance.

An extension of the park  joins up with work done by Cambridge Primary School on their land, and forms the Stanaway Reserve.
