Great news! We are expecting the second phase of the play park renovation to get underway on Monday 19 November. This phase will see two new sets of swings installed along with new fencing and a 30m zip-wire just outside the park.
In the meantime, the Council has removed the seats from the cradle and flat swings, as these items were flagged as moderate risk in the safety inspection. As they are due to be replaced within the next month, it would not be cost effective to repair them.
Back in June the Parish Council placed an order with HAGS for phase one of the play park renovation. The new equipment includes two new climbing frames – one for toddlers and one for school-age children – a spinning bowl, seesaw and trampoline.
The project has been slightly delayed, for reasons beyond our control, but we are pleased that installation is now going ahead.
Contractors will arrive on Tuesday 14 August to start clearing the site, and work will continue for about 3 weeks.
Access to the play park will be from the nearest entrance, off Farman Crescent, and we would appreciate your cooperation in keeping the cul de sac clear of parked cars so that the play equipment installers can carry on with their work and there is no risk of damage to resident’s vehicles.
The existing play park will be closed during the construction works. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but think the end result will be worth waiting for! Click on the image for a larger view of how the play park will look when phase one is completed.
Tenders are invited to provide for the design, supply and installation of new play equipment, surfacing and associated works at Upper Rissington, Gloucestershire.
