If you live in Cowplain and have small children, you may or may not have used the park that was occupied the top corner of Cowplain Recreation ground (opposite the Cowplain Activity Centre). To be fair, it wasn’t in the best of repair. The park did have a good slide, ancient see-saw (bent) and a couple of swings. Not a great park to to keep the children amused!
You may be pleased to know that this is all changing.
Currently in progress is Phase 1 of a new play park. The first phase is to be completed by late September – basically this means clearing the site. The old park has gone and railings are up to keep people out.
We used the park a few weeks before all this was announced and we noticed at the time that it looked like areas had been drawn out on the ground, so we’re not surprised. We popped up to the recreation ground to take a few pictures last week with our small boys, and they were pleased at this new development – well if you would be if you were under 8!
Phase 2 of the building works where the play equipment will be installed will hopefully be complete by Christmas. The equipment is currently out to tender – a public meeting will be held to display the schemes. Based on the meeting, a choice will be made and installation can be begin.
It’s a bit of a shame that it’ll be finished in the middle of winter, but hopefully it’ll be another great park that we can visit next year!
