As part of our ongoing work to improve and enhance our green spaces, we're investing £1.3million in our borough's parks over the next three years. As part of this, we're transforming three playgrounds within the borough: Beverley Park, Victoria Recreation Ground and King George's Recreation Ground. As well as this, exciting plans are in place to install a brand new outdoor gym in King George's Recreation Ground.

    We asked

    We shared draft plans for the revamp of Victoria Recreation Ground playground and asked for your views.

    You said

    The feedback on the plans was positive, with feedback including:

    • wanting more social and imaginative play equipment for young children

    • asking for cradle seat swings in the toddler area

    • asking that the proposed trampoline is made bigger

    • not being in favour of the maze in the playground

    We did

    Based on your feedback, we changed the plans for Victoria Recreation Ground playground. The changes are:

    Play equipment for young children
    A number of people asked for more imaginative play equipment for young children. We have changed the plans to include a toddler train, playhouse and cradle seat swings in the toddler area.

    Trampoline
    Based on feedback, we have changed the plans to include a larger 2m x 2m trampoline.

    More natural-looking design
    A number of people asked for more natural looking surfacing, so this has been toned down to a more natural colour which is more in keeping with the local area.

    What was removed
    Of those who responded to the survey, a number of people were not supportive of the maze and the timber edging around the sandpit, so these have both been removed from the design.

    Next steps

    The works on site are due to start in mid September and complete in early October, taking around 4 weeks.
