Transforming an underutilized, very large community recreation and sports area into a future proof community and sports park, at no cost to the council.
REASON FOR UPGRADE:
To get the local community back out into the fresh air, by offering a host of opportunities that will positively impact people’s lives.
- To get families sharing fun times together outside in their own borough!
- To offer sports and recreational facilities that will expand people’s minds and physical skills thus giving them opportunities to learn and grow as well as creating healthy regimes.
- To attract visitors to the borough, and to be seen as an innovative borough, helping to shape the future rather than waiting for the future to shape it!
- For the new facilities to be low maintenance and generate income to pay for the upkeep of the new park.
