THE undeniable success of the Waterford Nature Park is being echoed in Tramore with the construction of the town’s new Nature Park.
The stellar work of Waterford City and County Council has seen the addition of litter bins and dog bins and bags, together with well-appointed seats to allow visitors to take advantage of the panoramic views.
The far-seeing visions of Tramore Eco Group and Waterford City & County Council has revitalised what was once a dark area in Tramore and has ultimately given further choices to locals and visitors to Tramore.
Signage indicating the various birdlife in the area is dotted around the nature park making the area an ideal destination for photography clubs, bird-watchers and, as one resident pointed out, an ideal spot for those who are perhaps newly retired and seeking a more social aspect during the day.
Locals have already begun praising the beauty of the park but many have echoed reminders to dog-owners to be vigilant about using the dog bins provided, in order to maintain the beauty of the park. Tramore already boasts a very successful ‘bee-corridor’ and this can certainly be expected to continue throughout the nature park, joining the wildlife community of the picturesque backstrand.
Works are ongoing at present with Indian Sandstone being laid at present but visitors are welcome to visit the nature park to watch the development of the park.
When it has been completed, the entire lower end of the promenade will have been redeveloped; from the coffee hub on the lower promenade, to the relaxing spot at Bia+Brew and the glorious walk in between. What is developing and emerging is a united community with a forward thinking plan in place.
