PUBLISHED: 09:00 09 August 2018
Work on a Weston park refurbishment costing £90,000 will begin in the coming months.
Proludic is responsible for improving Canberra Road park after town councillors voted unanimously to support its project at a tourism and leisure meeting on Monday.
The park will have space for more than 70 users at any given time, and will be suitable for children up to 15 years old.
Alongside the existing supernova and swings, Proludic proposes to build a balancing chair, roundabout, multiplay unit and pod unit.
The park will also become wheelchair accessible while bins, fencing, gates, a buggy park and zip wire skyrail will be installed, as will safer surfacing.
Speaking at the meeting, Cllr Ian Porter said: “These plans are the most clear and accurate and show an area which children will be able to enjoy for years to come.
“They also have no areas which can be targeted by people spraying graffiti tags.”
A spokesman for Proludic said: “We are keen to work with Weston town council to ensure this proves to be a sustainable investment for many years to come.
“Care has been taken to ensure the play area offers a challenging experience with a strong range of equipment, allowing for inclusive play throughout the play area.
“As well as catering for the equipment needs of the children, we will provide a safe, family friendly environment for all users.
“We designed the playground with the community in mind, drawing from the community consultation provided within the tender for our selection of equipment.”
