Investment by North Norfolk District Council in North Lodge Park, Cromer, has seen the yacht pond extensively refurbished and refilled in readiness for the main visitor season.
North Norfolk District Council contracted Thrower & Rutland Ltd to undertake the works, which cost £8,556.50.
The pond, which had been leaking, was drained and then lined with glass-reinforced plastic, giving a 25-year guarantee. The outside of the pond was given a coating of non-toxic mineral paint.
The refilling process was completed earlier in the week.
Cllr Nigel Pearce, North Norfolk District Council ward member for Suffield Park, said: “This pond is an iconic part of the town and it is great we have been able to repair and refurbish it so it can bring fun and happiness to the next generation of children and their parents.”
The pond works are one of the elements being undertaken by North Norfolk District Council to improve North Lodge Park.
North Norfolk District Council is also planning minor internal improvements to the café, repairs to the timber footbridge and refurbishments to the bowling green and sunken garden shelters. Possibilities are being explored for Collectors Cabin.
