Thornbury Town Council Renews Play Area

Work will soon be underway to provide a much-needed upgrade to the play area at Chantry Road.

Local children have had a say in which pieces of equipment they would like to play on, leading to an exciting final design.

This will include some items of accessible play equipment.  The Town Council felt that this was particularly important following discussion with some local groups who work with children with additional needs.  Chantry Road play area is almost fully enclosed which may help children with additional needs enjoy this play area more safely.

The Town Council is also including a new path that will allow wheelchair users and buggies easy access to the play equipment and an accessible seating area.  The access pathways from both Tilting Road and Chantry Road are also being resurfaced.  The new pathway to the play equipment can be accessed from the Tilting Road entrance.

The Town Council is aiming to have the play area completed by Spring or early Summer so that families can enjoy the renewed facility as the weather improves.
