Case Studies - Nene Park

Nene Park is 1,725 acres of stunning green space in Peterborough that is looked after by the Nene Park Trust and a team of volunteers. The park offers a range of activities for visitors of all ages. In addition to walking, cycling and horse riding, Nene Park offers facilities for boat trips, water sports, children’s play areas, climbing, orienteering and bird watching to name a few.

A new 750-meter boardwalk was built in the Park’s Bluebell Wood as part of the 4km Bluebell trail. Gripsure supplied over 8,400 linear meters of Gripsure Pro castellated non-slip decking used for the boardwalk. The sub frame of the boardwalk was built by contractors and completed by Nene Park staff and volunteers who secured the decking boards and handrails using over 30,000 screws. The finished boardwalk has unspoilt views of the River Nene and ensures safe access to visitors all year round for years to come.
