The new equipment will have exciting play opportunities for children of all abilities and we will be providing a Changing Places Toilet (www.changing-places.org) so families can enjoy their visit for longer and make full use of the new inclusive play area.
The new playground equipment will feature:
- an area for toddlers with swings and a small climbing frame and slide
- a variety of different swings, including a wheelchair accessible swing and a multiperson swing
- a trampoline built into the ground
- a wheelchair accessible roundabout
- a large climbing frame inspired by the tree house designs produced by pupils of Manor Field School
The new playground will be much larger, extending out as far as the basketball hoop. The need for more shade was frequently mentioned during our public consultation so we will be planting lots of trees and adding extra seating.
We will also be laying a path to connect the junction of Manor Road / Janes Lane with the play area and improving the drainage of the football pitches.
The next stage is to enter into discussions with professional playground designers who will produce more detailed plans and visual imagery to give you a better idea of how the new playground will look.
