New play equipment
The first stage of this two part project has been completed and local children and parents have begun enjoying the exciting new equipment.
SMP playgrounds have carried out part one, installing the new equipment and safety surfacing under the equipment, but unfortunately part two, which is to be completed by Landbuild Limited, is still to follow. They will be creating the new entrance, sloped pathway and new play area perimeter fencing.
Despite the delay in part two of the project, it was decided to remove the security fencing before it became a hazard. This now allows open access to the park, which everyone spoken to is delighted with, although we can not, in the short term, keep dogs out. Most good dog owners have responded positively and we will monitor the site daily.
The new play equipment is already proving popular with local kids after school is finished.
Thank you to everyone for their support and help.
Outdoor Fitness equipment
A £20k scheme to install outdoor Gym style fitness equipment across the whole age range was opened in September 2015. It includes push, sit and step up equipment, a cycle, walkers and steppers.
Use of the pavilion
A charge maybe levied when using the pavilion.
