The museum entrance to Verulamium Park now boasts an entrance fitting of its prestigious status in the city.
The area near Verulamium Museum has been transformed into a landscaped garden including raised flower-beds and a paved area of picnic benches. It is now home to an array of colourful flowers, including blue fescue, Japanese blood grass, lavender and fern.
Because of the historic nature of the site, the design was a collaboration between the district council’s archaeologist, Verulamium Park Forum and English Heritage.
Environment portfolio holder for the district council, Cllr Daniel Chichester-Miles, said: “The area at the St Michael’s Street entrance to Verulamium Park has been transformed into an attractive welcoming space for visitors to the park and Verulamium Museum.”
