How the new café could look

“Various views of what the local residents wanted from their park have been polled recently and the top two were a café and toilets.

“Having the licence for the pavilion will enable us to satisfy both expectations.”

Conservative councillor for Bretton Scott Warren said: “This is something that Bretton Park has long needed. This park has needed a café facility for residents and uses of the water park.

“These are exciting times for Bretton Park as much need development is a start to the park becoming a jewel in the crown for Peterborough.”

A planning application is also due to be put in for an indoor sports hall in conjunction with the rugby club.
