05 Nov HAVE YOUR SAY ON REVAMPED PLAYGROUNDS
Residents are invited to have their say on renovation plans for two Chessington playgrounds.
Play areas in Sir Francis Barker Recreation Ground, Leatherhead Road, and RAF Chessington Playground, Coppard Close, are to be revamped in 2021 as part of Kingston Council’s £1.3million Community Parks Programme.
It is proposed that Sir Francis Barker Recreation Ground’s toddler area will have new equipment such as a floor trampoline and wheelchair roundabout while the junior area will benefit from a new three-way seesaw, spinner bowl and standing spinner.
Plans for RAF Chessington include a floor trampoline and floor markings to help children learn about road safety as well as a roundabout, sandpit with wheelchair access, agility trail climbing net, a teen area and outdoor gym.
Councillor Hilary Gander, Kingston Council’s Portfolio Holder for Environment and Sustainable Transport, said: “Our job is to provide safe, accessible and enjoyable spaces for all of our community and we are delighted to be starting work on three more exciting playground transformations.”
