The restored site could be a haven for frogs and other wildlife
A dried-up pond is to be restored next year after a group of volunteers set out to raise money and carry out work.
Work to start clearing the area around the pond in Shadbolt Park, near Epsom, will get under way on 28 February.
Surrey Wildlife Trust (SWT) said 36 residents attended a public meeting in December to plan the project.
The pond dried up after the concrete liner cracked, but SWT said the restored site could be a haven for frogs, newts, toads and dragonflies.
Spokeswoman Frances Halstead said: "Shadbolt Park Pond badly needs restoration. In its current state it no longer holds water and the original concrete sides are very steep."
She said the project, which has a share of lottery funding, could turn the pond into a community asset with great benefit to wildlife.
Shadbolt Park is owned by Epsom and Ewell Borough Council, but the pond was created by previous owners of the land.
Work next year will see the concrete liner broken up and used to fill part of the pond.
The water feature will then have shallower sides with a butyl liner which is less costly and easier to repair.
