The junior play area in Parkwood Recreation Ground now has new equipment including a rope swing and group swing, giving young people in the area wonderful new items to enjoy. In addition, all of the hand and foot holds have been replaced on the climbing structure and a large area of tarmac has been removed and returned to grass. This work follows the refurbishment of the play area for younger children in 2020, and the skate facility earlier this year.
Upper Fullingpits Play Area off Garrington Close, Vinters Park now has a new multi play unit and swings. The work also included replacing the surfacing under the new equipment.
Lastly, work has now finished on replacing the multi play unit in Dickens Road Play Area. The work also included replacing the rubber surfacing under the new equipment. The timber balancing beam has been repainted and the surfacing was repaired in front of the swings.
Cllr Martin Round, Lead Member for Environmental Services at MBC said:
“All three play areas look so much better, this wonderful new equipment gives local children the opportunity to get outside, get active and have some fun in much improved areas.
“It is part of our ambition at MBC to make sure everyone has access to high quality parks and green spaces, so all of these projects have been funded from our ‘Capital Play - Continued Improvements to Play Areas’ budget.”
