Restoration Works Plan

social media info panel

The project will focus on biodiversity and will include:
 Installing aeration equipment (to increase and stabilize the amount of dissolved oxygen in the lake) which will stop silt building up and slowly, over
time, reduce the amount of silt currently in the lake, altogether improving lake water quality
 Restoring and improving lake edges
 Lake margin, island and woodland understorey planting
 Bird and bat boxes
 Improving the surface around the Beacon
 Introducing more seating
 Create a viewing platform, and fishing pegs
 Improved footpaths
 Tree works (which have already taken place), due to tree condition or where trees were damaging the lake banks for example
 Access for occasional boating (on high days and holidays)
 Public art with interpretations, for example information about the wildlife, habitat, history of the lake and how to get involved
We are very grateful to the NLHF, and to National Lottery players, for funding the project development work and for contributing almost £660,000
towards restoring our wonderful lake, and for all that they have enabled to happen in the park so far #ThanksToYou
We are also indebted to Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is our partner on this project, and for the expert advice and support they are providing. We are
also grateful, as always, for the support of the Boultham Park Advisory Group whose enthusiasm for the park and the lake help to drive us forward,
and to our wonderful volunteers.
