St Pauls Community Playground Project
Playgrounds are a great way for children and adults to get active together in their local Park.
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funding achieved by the friends of St Paul’s Recreation Ground has kick started a community project to improve the much loved local play area. Working closely together, local residents, Council Officers, and the selected contractor, the project will deliver improvements identified through the community led survey and suggested by pupils from year 6 at St Pauls school.
There will be some new equipment, some replaced, some repaired. The zipwire will get put back in action, there will also be some disability inclusive equipment added; wide slide with handles, seats for swings and a roundabout.
Some equipment that is in good working order will stay; the climbing net, and all the swings, where needed there will also be some resurfacing.
A trim trail and new under-5 play equipment will add additional play value to the site.
The new playground opened again in early June. Improvements to the playground include; a trim trail, rope swing, roundabout, scooter trail, wide slide, log steps and mound, trampolines, play frame and additional play markings.
Additional surfacing, benches, bins and picnic tables have also been added to the space. We are working with the contractor to complete any minor works outstanding. We thank you for your patience.
An additional funding bid submitted by the team has been successful. The funding will look at improving the MUGA/Ball Court area and will be the focus of the next stage of playground improvement works expected to take place in Spring next year.
