Bayou Gumbo


Cross Flatts is an important green space in an inner city area which has undergone extensive regeneration in recent years, turning areas of derelict wasteland into green areas and cleaning up traditional waste dumping sites into an area for use by the community.

A popular adventure playground has also been built. The two organisations primarily responsible for this transformation are The Friends of Cross Flatts Park and Beeston in Bloom, two voluntary-run residents groups working to contribute to the regeneration of Beeston.
