A new park has opened in Hereford after £40,000 of redevelopment works.

New pathways, access routes and seating have been installed in Belmont Haywood Country Park to link it with nearby housing estates.

A festival featuring Morris dancers, zumba performances and a community games event took place to mark its official opening.

Mayor of Hereford Phil Edwards said the 11-acre park - reclaimed from former farmland - was "a fantastic space".

"We're aiming to encourage as many people as possible to walk, cycle or even come down here on their mobility scooter," he said.
