Green Square, the new focal point on Long Causeway in Peterborough city centre, is being officially opened today (Tuesday 15 December.)
The square is the central feature of the £2 million Long Causeway scheme, the latest phase of the council’s public realm works to transform the city centre.
It features a granite floor design celebrating the works of local poet John Clare, surrounded by benches engraved with poems written by local schoolchildren and decorative marker posts.
The schools that contributed poetry for the benches in Green Square are Thorpe Primary School, Newark Hill Academy and Castor Church of England Primary School.
The overall regeneration project has installed new paving, seating, trees with uplighting and cycle parking on Long Causeway.
