AN outdoor ice rink could be built in ambitious plans for Greenhead Park in Huddersfield.
Specialist consultants are drawing up the project to restore the park to its former glory.
But the proposals hinge on Lottery funding being won.
A display of the ideas has gone on show at the pavilion in the park.
Clr Linda Wild, chairman of Kirklees Council's Huddersfield Area Committee, said: "The prospects are exciting and wide-ranging and could see the park being a huge visitor attraction as well as being a vital local amenity, particularly for young people.
"As well as restoration and repair of existing original features there is scope for other exciting developments such as a boating lake, outside ice rink, extension of the railway line and many other possibilities."
Landscape consultants Bertram Hyde are working on the scheme and the council has issued a plea for the town's people to get involved by making comments.
Clr Wild said: "Options and ideas will be identified through consultation with different sectors of the community and with people who are regular park users.
"The park is a major facility in Huddersfield which needs to have its potential maximised.
"It is a site of major significance and much appreciated by the people of the town, and caters for all age groups."
Detailed proposals for the park - the largest in Kirklees - will need backing from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Increased council spending would be added for a scheme which could cost £2m.
Clr Wild added: "It is hoped that the scheme will receive support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and that contractors could make a start on the work as early as next summer.
"The park dates back to 1893 and while many of its original features still remain intact there is a need in need for restoration and repairs, as well as looking at options to introduce new attractions, facilities and features."
A report earlier this year said the bandstand, shelters, fountain and lighting were in critical need of refurbishment. Paths, drives, bridges, walls, drains, steps and balustrades are also in a poor state.
