This project needs those that care, and those that care need Longacres Park.

What we'll deliver:

  • Maintain and upkeep of trees to protect green spaces
  • Plant 5 new trees to better preserve the area.

Why it's a great idea:

Maintaining St.Albans starts with maintaining the area in which we all live. The green spaces we live, walk and play in. The luxury of seeing the trees change colours with the seasons is something easily forgotten and taken for granted, yet difficult to maintain without support. The availability of taking our children to a local, safe, attractive, engaging space is a part of infrastructure so easily overlooked, but a fundamental part of our lives when being proud of where we live. With local support, we are in control of our own upkeep and appreciation of the smaller things in life that have the biggest impact. Together we are St.Albans and together we enjoy all that it has to offer. Together we support Longacres Park so that tomorrow we can again call it home with pride.

Steps to get it done:

  • Local Financial Support
  • Council support and agreement to protect and regenerate
