Get out and play at improved local parks

Children and families on the Island can benefit from a £22,000 investment in play equipment at four parks.

Swale Borough Council has delivered a number of improvements to parks in Minster, with new equipment installed to offer more activities for a wider range of children to enjoy.

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

"These improvements are a great addition to the play facilities in the area, and I hope local children enjoy playing with them for years to come.

"We have increased our investment in local play areas and open spaces and are delivering improvements across the borough to help encourage more families to get their children out in the fresh air, doing what they do best – playing."

The recently completed improvements are:

The Glen Play Area, Minster – new toddler play unit, with climbing, bridge and slide, along with a new toddler swing provides play opportunities to younger children who were not previously catered for by the play area.

Noreen Avenue Play Area, Minster – the addition of a spinner, seesaw and springer to this play area add to the existing slide, roundabout and swings already providing play opportunities for the local children to enjoy.

The council is also planning to replace the 30 year old galleon ship at the Beachfields sandpit play area, and replace equipment, including play units and swings, at Rectory Playing Field play area by Easter next year.
