Calderdale Council is currently working on a funding application to make some improvements to Ogden Water Local Nature Reserve and need to gather information from people who currently visit the site (or who may visit in the future) to help them assess whether or not the proposed works would improve the facilities on site enough to encourage visitors to visit more often, particularly between October and March each year.
The work we are currently trying to secure funding for includes:
1. Resurfacing of the main path around the reservoir using a new surface which is free draining (no more puddles or ice!) and has some give in it which makes it more comfortable to walk or run on and is more accessible for wheelchair users and people with mobility issues.
2. Installation of accessible play equipment near the picnic area.
3. Resurfacing and marking out of car parks to maximise space for parking, provide level parking for visitors with disabilities with space around the vehicle to make getting out of the vehicle safer and prevent puddles when it rains.
If you have never visited the site before, they would particularly like to hear from you. To find out more about Ogden Water, please visit : www.visitcalderdale.com/attra-ogden-water-country-park
