The newly installed play area on Sutton Lawn is going down a storm with families across the area. Children are now enjoying brand new swings, a junior climbing frame and a multi-play area installed by Ashfield District Council.
Nottinghamshire County Council’s Local Improvement Scheme donated £28k and this was matched funded through Ashfield District Council’s Play Park Strategy.
The multi play unit now supports unaided wheelchair access to enable all children to play together in an inclusive play space. This challenges young people’s physical abilities whilst having play panels and games to challenge hand eye coordination and dexterity.
Councillor Helen-Ann Smith, Deputy Leader of Ashfield District Council and Portfolio Holder for Streets, Parks and Town Centres, said: “We’re proud to be able to bring major improvements such as these to one of Ashfield’s major parks. Children can now look forward to playing during the summer holidays in the newly installed play area at Sutton Lawn.
“The inclusive element to the new set up on Sutton Lawn is fantastic, it’s great to see how popular it is already – I look forward to seeing it continue to thrive this summer.”
