The historic entrance to a Hull park was officially unveiled on Thursday after undergoing a major restoration.

Pearson Park’s Victorian archway and gates are back after a year of careful revamping and the Lord Mayor was on hand to declare the entrance reopen.

The structure was removed in December last year so it could be worked on by specialists as part of a £3m initiative funded by the National Lottery.

A new colour scheme of a green and cream colour has been applied and previously lost historic features have been reinstated using 3D scanning and modelling technology.

New developments at Pearson Park will also see the restoration of historic statues, a brand-new conservatory and the reinstatement of lost Victorian features such as the bandstand and a bridge over the park’s lake.

The park was given the grant under the Parks for People scheme to transform the popular green space, and put in place a five-year plan for educational and training opportunities.
