The play park was innovatively designed and installed by Wicksteed; with the play pieces were chosen by local children via a consultation in March with the nearby schools and preschools and with an online poll. The top 3 pieces of equipment requested were the two multi play units and a bird’s nest swing. These were included in the chosen scheme along with a crusader rope swing, a donkey springer, a cradle and flat swing and a parent and baby swing. There are a total of eight new pieces of play equipment, with two new safety gates. The scheme came in under budget with an investment of £45,000 from the Town Council.

Councillor Peter Allen, Chairperson of the Amenities Committee, said “This is the third and last play park to be upgraded by the Town Council in the last 3 years and I hope it brings many hours of fun for the families in the area”.

An official opening by the Town Mayor will take place in October, when the children have returned back to school from their summer break.
