Astey's Row Playground will be closed from Monday 7th January for approximately 12 weeks whilst it undergoes a makeover to create a brand new playful landscape for everyone to enjoy.
Designed by landscape architect firm Wayward following two rounds of consultation with stakeholders, the new playground will see the installation of playable boulders, a tree-top trail, a stag beetle hotel and bog garden. The existing ballcourt will be also be upgraded to a multi-use games area as part of the scheme. You can download an overview of the design from the Useful Documents section at the bottom of the page.
SLC Southern Landscape and Construction Ltd will be carrying out the work over the next 3 months and we will continue to update you as the project progresses. If you have any questions or would like to make a comment, please email Project Manager Lara Ellington-Brown. You will also be added to the mailing list to ensure that you do not miss out on any future project updates.
