On 11th June 2019, KSDL took part in a charity day with our on site charity partner Greenstreams.
Greenstreams is working on improved access to the river from the main footpath at Kilner Bank and The John Smith’s Stadium. We also installed boards showing the network of paths and cycle routes along the river corridor at both the Stadium and Snow Island.
The riverside walk below Kilner Bank is now much more attractive for both people and wildlife following tree thinning works along the path. Vegetation around the picnic table and seating has also been cleared along with large amounts of historic litter. To improve access to the river a new set of steps has been built from the main footpath; this also helps with the maintenance. This work has now been given a big boost with additional funding opening up a range of new possibilities.
