Caroline Flint and Cllr Elsie Butler joined walkers and volunteers to enjoy a walk from Warmsworth to Martinwells Lake this week.
The walk began at the Yorkshire Main Community Centre, ending at the lake, via Warmsworth, where the volunteers enjoyed a barbeque.
Said Ms Flint: “The access to this lake is almost unrecognisable compared to this time last year. The paths have been opened up, the steps provide a great view of the lake and the boardwalk has been renewed.
“This has been an excellent effort by Maureen Tennyson, Margaret Adamson, Mo Cantrill and all of the Friends of Martinwells Lake. The Neighbourhood Manager, Trevor Heptinstall and his team have been very supportive and this project is going from strength to strength.”
A tender has now been issued for a fishing club to operate the licence to manage fishing at the lake.
The walk was organised by Jim Shaw from Living Streets. Local campaigners want to open up all of the local walking routes and ensure they are properly signposted.
Martinwells Lake is the new name for the brick pond where two boys were seriously injured in an attack in 2009.
