A SPECIAL event was held to mark the transformation of a riverside path.

The Higher Coach Road Residents Group has been determined to see improvements to the path which runs by the side of the cricket pavilion in Saltaire's Roberts Park up to a bridge which leads to the Bradford Rowing Club.

In the winter months it has been muddy and almost inaccessible in some places, but with funding secured through Pocket Parks, it has now been upgraded.

Some trees have been planted, benches have been placed in key locations, nature walk signs and display boards have been erected and there has also been an enhancement of the meadow area. The path is now more regularly used by dog-walkers, joggers, walking groups and others. The group thanked all involved.
