Plant lovers are hoping to take two city bowling greens back to their roots.
The greens in Preston Park will become wildflower gardens this spring, with a mix of poppies, marigolds and lupins for visitors to enjoy.
Both greens have lain unused for the past two years.
Council staff and volunteers sowed the squares of grass with seeds, which will flower from May to November.
Maria Crippa, a harvest growing officer, said: “It will be a dramatic change to see these bowling greens covered in wildflowers during the summer months.”
