Work to improve the drainage and to resurface the car park near The Walks stadium on Tennyson Avenue in King’s Lynn has now been completed, following the transfer of the car park back to the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk.
The car park, which was previously leased to King’s Lynn Town Football Club, was in a very poor state of repair and had been for some time, exacerbated by inefficient drainage on the site. It has now been transformed into a much more useable and welcoming space.
The council has undertaken a major project to improve the drainage and to create a surface suitable not only for cars but also for coaches when the car park is used by the football club for visiting teams.
The Walks car park is now part of King’s Lynn’s long-stay parking portfolio. Visitors can park free for three hours by putting their registration number into the machine. This is designed specifically to enable frequent users of The Walks park to continue to enjoy facilities within The Walks as they did previously, predominantly free of charge.
Anyone wishing to stay longer, or wanting to return before the no-return-within-3-hours-period has expired, can simply enter their registration number into the machine and pay for an extension of time.
The car park will still be used by King’s Lynn town Football Club when they are hosting fixtures and other events. Local signage at the entrance of the car park will advise of restrictions to parking on these days.
Long-term parking permits are available for the car park, but the parking restrictions, that apply for home games and other events at the football club, will still apply and permit holders should check the entrance signage regularly.
