FAMILIES still have time to have their say over the future of Portsmouth’s Victoria Park.

The council is seeking views about its future as part of a six-week consultation into the city centre’s most prominent green space.

An action plan has been developed which looks at ideas for this much-loved park, including a new home for birds and animals, a petting zoo, improvements to paths, 24-hour access, and facilities for adults with learning disabilities.

With 15 acres of green space and mature trees there’s currently a play park, fountain, bird aviary and animal enclosure, and a privately run venue The Arts Lodge.

Residents can feedback their views on the action plan, and the 
council’s cabinet will consider recommendations at a meeting in December.

The consultation into the plans finishes on Friday, November 11.

Councillor Donna Jones, leader of Portsmouth City Council, said: ‘This is a really exciting time for the city centre’s most beautiful and unique green space and I’d like to encourage as many people as possible to take part.’
