Water issue at Pittville lake resolved

The issue with the water at the lake, caused by low oxygen levels alongside some environmental factors, is now resolved. To ensure that the oxygen levels in the water remain safe for our fish, we’ll continue to work with the Environment Agency.

The aerators in the lake are working to capacity to create a bigger oxygenated sanctuary for the fish and all of the deceased fish have been removed.

The signs have been removed but please do not swim or allow your pets to swim in the lake at any time.

Cheltenham has been described as "a town within a park". The beauty and picturesque sights of Cheltenham continue to attract visitors from countries all over the world. For many years people have enjoyed the beauty of Cheltenham's parks, open spaces and general greenery of the town.

Many of our parks have management plans which detail how we will maintain, manage and develop the parks and gardens.

Knight, Kavanagh & Page was commissioned in 2016 to produce an open spaces study. View all the documents associated with the study.

Seasonal bedding

Seasonal bedding takes place across the numerous flower beds within our parks and gardens.

Usually summer bedding takes place in May and June and spring bedding takes place in October. However, this is dependent on weather conditions.
