Description

The Green Flag Award winning Centenary Park was created on a former allotment site after the land was returned to the council following the construction of the Western Relief Road.

The council developed a masterplan for the site in collaboration with a number of organisations, including Newbold-on-Avon Community Partnership, Butterfly Conservation, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and Newbold Riverside Academy.

Thanks to the generous support of the Veolia Environmental Trust, WREN, SITA Trust (all members of the Landfill Communities Fund) and the Woodland Trust, the park was created between 2014 and 2015. It was opened in March 2016 and was awarded a Green Flag Award just four months later.

The name of the park was chosen by pupils at Newbold Riverside Academy to reflect the centenary commemorations of the start of the First World War.

Centenary Park has Fields in Trust Centenary Field status.
