Fowlers Park Play Area Refurbishment

Closed 26 Jul 2019

Opened 2 Jul 2019

Overview

We would like your thoughts on the refurbishment of the existing children’s play area at Fowlers Park.

Why We Are Consulting

The play area has not been significantly upgraded for many years, however the necessary funds have been provided by the developer of new residential properties in the locality, through a “Section 106 agreement”.

Our proposed design is based on a blend of modern, vibrant play equipment suitable for a wide range of ages and ability levels. The equipment includes specially designed “inclusive equipment” which gives both disabled and able-bodied children the opportunity to play together. All existing surfacing will be replaced with new colourful rubber safety surfacing and surface graphics, to sit under the play equipment. A new ramp with hand rails will also be installed to enable children with disabilities to reach the play area from the park’s perimeter path.

What Happens Next

Following the consultation period and consideration of any feedback, a formal tending process will be arranged to select a suitable contractor to implement the design and to carry out the refurbishment works in full.
