Consultation on financing the inclusive adventure play project – Parson’s Close Recreation Ground

The Town Council has had a long term aspiration to increase the availability of accessible play equipment in the parish. This has led to the gradual installation of more accessible play equipment over time in a number of Town Council owned play areas.

As the town’s most centrally located, most popular and most visited park, it has long been the intention to develop a fully inclusive adventure play area in Parson’s Close Recreation Ground, in which children of all abilities and needs can play together – including playing at height. This aspiration forms part of the Town Council’s Five Year Plan and Objectives for 2019-2024.

Find out more about the project including Frequently Asked Questions and view the play area designs.

Thank you to all who took part in the consultation regarding the financing of the project. An update will be available shortly.
