The fields, used by the local community, Fordley Community Primary School, and Backworth Park Minors Football Club, required a complex new drainage system and were fitted with subterranean water storage tanks to accommodate the restricted main outfall.

As part of the redevelopment, Blakedown also refurbished the natural turf bowling green on site, with up-graded drainage channels and redesigned walkways.
