Kings Gardens Southport – The improvements are looking good

The huge project to refurbish Kings Gardens on Southport’s front next to the Marine Lake are showing signs of the area being returned to if not its former glory then a modern interpretation of it.

I went to have a good look at the work recently and took a number of photo’s. Here are some of them with a brief commentary on each one:-

New uncovered seating is in the same style as the original and nicely done too.
