The Derby City Parks department are presenting proposals for the construction of a multi-user path through Darley Park on the west side of the River Derwent (joining the Abbey pub with the rowing clubs). This route will provide a great route for the Derwent Valley Cycleway linking the historic Darley Abbey village (and pub) with the rest of the route.
The Parks department are holding a consultation session on both Friday 12th and Saturday 13th (10am to 2pm) by the Darley Park cafe and it would be very useful for interested individuals to provide their input and to complete the consultation forms. The poster about the consultation can be found here
3 options for the route are under consideration and can be seen on the map here
The planned path will provide many benefits to walkers, disabled users, and cyclists and we hope as many people as possible are able to provide positive feedback on the plans.
Please attend the consultation or, if not possible, then please provide your input by email.
