Holbrook Park: playground revamp starting soon

Holbrook Park playground is set to be refurbished very soon. Thank you to everyone who took part in the consultation about the play equipment that I ran in the summer.

The City Council has acted on the wishes expressed by local people and ordered the climber and spinner roundabout. These are now at the Council’s depot and ready to be installed. Other maintenance work is going to be done at the same time, including a new safety surface and some landscaping.

I met the council’s managers responsible for maintaining and running the parks at Holbrook Park yesterday morning. They are ready to go with the new equipment, and have also said they would like to upgrade the wooden climbing equipment that has been there since 1995, as it is in poor shape, with splits in the wood and some wearing away of the rope ladder. Here is a picture of what they propose to put in its place.

The Council would like to begin the refurbishment work this month, before winter sets in, so any comments by the end of the weekend, please.
