Faversham play improvements

Monday 10 December

Park plans approved for pool, and Windermere work complete

The play area at Faversham Swimming Pool will be getting a much-needed refurbishment in the New Year.

Work will begin in January following confirmation of investment by Swale Borough Council and Rotary Club of Faversham.

The colourful new area will deliver an exciting theme based around a pirate ship, with five other play items for children up to the age of 12.

The accessible and inclusive ship will have a colourful wet pour safety surface covered with sea themed graphics to bring the play area to life. Some of the current favourites like the swings and slide will be replaced along with a new roundabout, octopus seesaw and dolphin springer.

Subject to weather conditions, the works are due to be completed by February half term.

This is not the only play area Faversham to benefit from investment.

The Windermere Road play area in Faversham has just been completely refurbished, including the installation of a new play unit with slide, springer and seesaw. It has benefitted from over £11,000 refurbishment from a local development fund. The new play area has delivered a colourful, smart, properly equipped and fenced play experience.

Cllr David Simmons, cabinet member for environment and rural affairs, said:

"The refurbishment at Windermere Road play area has transformed the play area with new equipment and fencing, delivering a safe and inviting mix of play opportunities for children to enjoy.

"We look forward to delivering the new exciting play area outside the pool that will cater for a mix of younger and older children in a dynamic, colourful and stimulating pirate-themed play area.

"With our investment and the supported funding from the Rotary Club of Faversham, the new play area will offer children of all abilities to play in an inclusive environment. We are grateful to Rotary Club of Faversham for their continued support of this play area after contributing to the current play area, which was installed 28 years ago."

More information on both of these play areas and others within the borough can be found on our parks pages.
