We are delighted (and very excited!) to unveil the enhancement of King George V Play Area in Haydon Wick.
The play area will undergo complete resurfacing from Monday 25th January until the end of February 2021 (depending on the weather conditions). The existing surface will be replaced with this innovative wet pour design and include mulch rubber footpaths leading from the main gates to, and interlinking, the two play areas. It is hoped that the footpath will help with the accessibility for pushchairs, wheelchairs and a create a more direct route for pedestrians using the Play Area as a cut through. The design in itself will add some additional play value with the graphics and the creation of some additional bunds around the perimeter, in keeping with the natural woodland surroundings.
Two new goal posts will be made and installed by the Parks & Projects Team and the Play Area Working Party is also researching some accessible play equipment that can be installed during the project.
The Play Area remains closed during the resurfacing works and we apologise in advance for any noise disruption.
We will share progress pictures throughout the project. For now, here is a sneaky peak of what it will look like…
