Thanks to funding secured from the Hinkley Point C Community Fund, a new toddler play area will be created at the public open space on Meadowlands Avenue, as well as an assault course on the open space between Duke Street and Crowpill Lane in Bridgwater.
Having identified a lack of play provision in the local area, Sedgemoor District Council was successful in securing over £50,000 from the Hinkley Point C Community Fund for improvements to green spaces. The remaining £29,000 was sourced through developer contributions and Sedgemoor’s parks development budget.
As part of the project, a toddler play area will be provided within an enclosed playground fence at the public open space located at Meadowlands Avenue.
An assault course will also be provided at the open space between Duke Street and Crowpill Lane to encourage active travel to other nearby facilities, such as the Wembdon Pavilion, Crowpill Lane play area, the Coastal Path and town centre. The equipment will be staggered at intervals along the open space and includes a slalom run, tightrope walk, parallel bars, vault bar, a walk the plant and log run.
