Vichai Memorial Garden Opens

Recommended Posts

went today and the elephant wasnt there! Half of it was in the compound behind! Other than that its well put together and just needs the appropriate weather to put in more plants and Id definitely put a statue of vichai in there

Apologies if I have missed this, but how do you access the garden - is it just a case of walking beyond the Kop, or do you go down the little road which leads to car park E? 

 

thanks!

Imagine what the new stadium will look like! I think they'll spend £200m on it

We're not spending £200m on expanding the ground

Yes I went down with my son before the game on Sunday just before it got dark. It's a really lovely space, and I think will only continue to look better as the plants mature.

 

Nicely done by the club, real top effort!

Hotel/concert arena, pulling the concourses out family/kop and adding another tear with hospitality,changing rooms,directors boxes etc werent come cheap! I think £200m is a fair estimate

I think that just because its football everyone has an inflated view of costs. You could build two entire KPs for that sort of money. Its not like they have to buy the land

two kingpower stadiums that were done on the cheap and not structurally strong enough to host concerts.  These guys live in the big world and will spend big on a world class venue! Mclaren will move on from the new training ground and start on the ground! They dont construct low budget stadiums like the walkers stadium was in the first place. All of the Eon site and brownfield has been purchased and the space will be maximised for something special.

No game to mark Vichai's birthday this year. I'm sure there will be something appropriate in his garden.

It would be his birthday on Saturday (4th April).

Am thinking of visiting the memorial garden area then (if it's open to the public?).

I think you need to rethink that, do you actually understand what's happening?

Yes, of course.

Work down the road from the stadium, and thought about this possibility.

But, now bearing in mind these government precautions being in place currently (that slipped out of my mind in my post above..), will erase this idea.:frantics:

Haha to be honest my first thought was I could go, but reality kicked in and it was no I can't, I suppose if you're nearby it could be in your daily exercise?

This memorial is magnificent and a wonderful tribute to a man who had the vision to make this Club great.

 

Can't understand the picky comments.Why can't folk keep their comments to themselves?
