Datchet Riverside

DATCHET RIVERSIDE

The Parish Council in partnership with The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and The Barker Bridge House Trust have almost completed a major refurbishment project at the Riverside Gardens, on Windsor Road, Datchet.

The works have included the building of a new riverside wall and footpath along the whole river frontage along with new mooring rings for visiting boats. We have refurbished all of the seats and put these on new bases and installed 3 new picnic tables. There is a new co-ordinated range of litter bins and lighting bollards and a wider access on the central path. The whole site has been regrarded and turfed. The frontage with Windsor Road has had a new bonded gravel strip installed along with new and refurbished white post and chains.

We have unfortunately had to remove 2 of the older tress for health and safety reasons and will shortly be pruning the other trees to allow more light into the site to help the new turf grow.

UP DATE Sept 2017 

We are installing a rope and post fence to prevent the geese from grazing the new turf and have resurfaced the areas underneath the picnic benches.

We will also be installing a dock ladder as a means of escape if anyone falls into the river.
