We will be investing almost £1.5 million to improve play areas across the town.

Timetable of improvements

  • 2019/20 - Old Town and Roebuck
  • 2020/21 - Symonds Green and Manor
  • 2021/22 - Woodfield and Bandley Hill
  • 2022/23 - Chells

We want to make sure that play areas provide fun and exciting places for children and teenagers to enjoy.

Larger sites, like main parks and bigger open spaces, will make provision for toddlers through to teenagers. Smaller sites will include equipment for younger children.

Work will include refurbishing existing sites and installing new equipment, with some sites benefitting from landscaping.

Archer Road Play Area

Meeting needs

Consultation with local children and young people will contribute to the play area improvements. As in previous years, they will be asked to choose their five favourite items of play equipment. The most popular choices will be included in the brief that is sent out to play equipment companies so that we can deliver improvements that meet the needs of local youngsters.
