Worthing Park To Be Refurbished Before Summer
Released: Thursday, 06 June 2019
Northbrook Recreation Ground Play Area is to be refurbished in time for the summer holidays.
The upgrade of the Northbrook Play Area, near Romany Road in Durrington, will provide an exciting and challenging play experience for children from toddlers to teenagers, up to 13 years old.
The improvements are being supported by £108,000 of funding from Worthing Borough Council's capital funding programme. The old and worn out play equipment will be removed at the nearby Pennycress Avenue play area. This stretch will be returned to grass as part of the project to extend and renew Northbrook Rec Play Area. The work will begin on Monday 10th June, and will be completed before Friday 19th July 2019.
The enhancements follow an on site consultation with local children and parents at the existing Play area to discuss what equipment they wanted to see installed. Council teams went to The Laurels First School to engage with the children to help shape the design of the playground.
Councillor Edward Crouch, Worthing Borough Council's Executive Member for Digital and Environmental Services said:
“I'm really pleased to see these plans being put into action over the coming months, delivering investment across Worthing and demonstrating our commitment to the local community.”
“This improved park is an important resource for children in the area, and I'm glad to see them benefiting from the refurbishment work.”
