It receives more than one million visitors every year. In the whole of East Midlands it is the most visited area. It covers an area of 207 acres. The park is under the management of the Derby City Council’s Leisure services Department. This park is popular in there area but has major problems.

Because of the neglect it has received from the Derby City Council for many years, there is a visible decline in many of its facilities, spaces and landscape. This state makes it hard for many of the people visiting the park to enjoy their visits. The quality of the park has gone down considerably and the number of visitors to the park has been observed to dwindle. In order to stop the deterioration in the facilities of the park the council made use of the Parks for people program by placing a bid with the Heritage Lottery Fund (Manuvhai 2011, 77).

Consequently, the council received a state one pass that will enable it get a grant of £2.4 million for project development in specific areas of the park. The project will not address all the problems being experienced at the park. However the investment is expected to greatly improve the park (Manning 2009). The bid placed by the council will carter for capital works aimed at improving and restoring the landscape and infrastructure of the park. This management report presents a plan for the renovation of the park.

The plan discusses the aims and objectives, project proposals, support for the proposals, time scales and work programs. Aims and objectivesMarkeaton Park is actually the most popular in the whole of Derby. However the decline in the recreational opportunities, facilities and the landscape has dealt a blow to its reputation. This project is designed to deal with the gradual decline and develop the park so that its quality can go up, raise the number of visitors and enhance their experience.

The major objective is to improve and maintain the park as a destination for visitors and the best park in Derby. The project also hopes to make use of different methods to interpret the park’s historical elements (Manning 2007, 45). This will ensure that people understand the changes that have taken place in the park’s facilities and uses with passing time. It is also expected that the project will enhance the utilization of the historic; landscape so that present and future use of facilities may be offered to reduce pressure on the historic features.

It will maintain the many recreational facilities that serve all ages so that many more people can be able to use them. The community participation in the management, use and maintenance of the park will also be developed (Institute of Park and Recreation Administration (Great Britain) 1974, 110).
