Playground improvements

Twineham play areaWe're currently seeking views on the outline design we've produced for improving the play area at Turners Hill Recreation Ground. Improvements could include a new climbing frame, a wheelchair accessible roundabout and resurfacing to make it easier for children with disabilities to get around.

We've heard from a few adults but it would be great to hear from some of the children who will use the playground in the future.
 The consultation closes on 20 January so please visit www.midsussex.gov.uk/leisure-sport/playgrounds/ and encourage your children to have a say.

At the end of last year we completed the playground equipment upgrades at Twineham Recreation Ground and they are well worth a visit if you live in the area. We've removed the old timber climbing frame and replaced it with a new toddler play house with slide and assault course style frame. The new rubber surfacing makes the play equipment easier to access and we've added a picnic table, which was a popular request during our public consultation.

You can keep up to date with all the latest playground plans, including consultations and feedback, at www.midsussex.gov.uk/leisure-sport/playgrounds/ We'll be launching a new consultation on improvements to Forest Fields play area in Haywards Heath so please keep an eye out for that one.
