Gloucester's King's Walk car park set to reopen after refurbishment

Improvements to King's Walk car park have been completed and the new-look will be seen for the first time on Saturday when it reopens for business.

The 22-week programme included increasing the number of parking spaces to 263 as well as improved stair and lift access.

A new entrance to the car park, as well as ramps, new signage and a new façade are also part of the extensive redevelopment.

The refurbishment is part of the wider transformation of King's Walk shopping centre by Gloucester City Council and its asset management partners Reef Group.

That includes new and remodelled shop fronts, the upgrading of Eastgate Street and new public toilet facilities on the ground floor of the car park.

A spokesperson for Gloucester City Council said: "It is great to see that the car park is now re-opened and offers better provision for our visitors and businesses alike to complement our significantly growing retail offer at King's Walk."

The car park opening coincides with a number of events as the city gears up for the festive period including Gloucester's Lantern Parade and Christmas Lights Switch On event on Sunday.

King's Walk sits within the £85million King's Quarter regeneration programme which aims to make significant improvements to the city centre including the re-designing of Kings Square.
