Newly refurbished children’s play area on Canberra Road opens

Weston-super-Mare Town Council is delighted to announce the official opening of the newly refurbished children’s play area on Canberra Road, Weston-super-Mare. Everyone is invited to join the Mayor at the play area on Wednesday 20th February at 11.00am to help celebrate this brilliant community space!

The Town Council invested £90,000 into the refurbishment, installed and designed by Proludic, which included the addition of a basket swing, agility trail, multiplay unit, cableway and more! 70 users can enjoy the play area at any given time and it is suitable for children up to 15 years old. The play area now also includes a wheelchair accessible picnic bench for family and friends to gather around, as well as 6 play items designed to deliver good play opportunities for a variety of additional needs, such as a low platform roundabout and play panels.

Consultation was carried out through online surveys and at Windwhistle Primary School, where pupils had the chance to say what they wanted to see in the play area.

The Town Clerk, Malcolm Nicholson, said “the Town Council now manages over 20 ageing play areas around Weston and Worle and is committed to a programme of refurbishments. We are delighted to be able to offer this much improved facility for the people of the Coronation estate.”

Everyone is invited to the opening where the Mayor will cut a ribbon and declare the play area officially open!
