THE regeneration of Diss Park received a boost this week after being granted �10,000 from the Big Lottery Fund.
The funding from the Awards for All grant will be used by Diss Town Council to appoint a project manager to help progress park improvements.
The first phase of the park regeneration project was completed last year following an �100,000 investment in a new toddler and children's play area.
The second phase will aim to provide a teenage area and adult fitness equipment on the park next to Diss Mere, which was requested by the public in a consultation. Other improvements would include new tree and wetland planting, new lighting and paths, picnic tables, additional signage, seating and litter bins.
The Big Lottery money will help fund the park project manager role to secure monies from other sources such as the Heritage Lottery Fund's Parks for People Fund, which can give grants of up to �5m.
In addition, the new project manager will develop community involvement in the scheme and create a green spaces strategy and management plan.
