Leamington could soon be home to a new riverside park with cycle routes to Warwick and Rugby.

Local councillors have made an agreement in principle to the riverside park which would be located alongside the rivers Leam and Avon, where the Edmondscote Athletics Track is presently situated.

The athletics track is looking to be relocated adjacent to the community football stadium, north of Gallows Hill.

The park plans to provide a safe, off-road link between Leamington and Warwick for both cyclists and pedestrians, which could span as far as Draycote Water.
