A PLAY park in Dursley has been awarded a runner-up prize in the Gloucestershire Playing Field Association’s Small Playground of the Year Competition 2013.
Dursley Town Council received a commemorative plaque and a prize of £50 for its redeveloped Kingshill Play Park.
The local authority has invested in new playground equipment and recently carried out work to remove old tarmac, level the grass area and create a new path across the park on the route between Oak Drive and Kingsdown.
The woodland areas of the park have also received attention providing more space for children to play safely.
Cllr Alex Stennett, chairman of the green spaces committee, said he was delighted that all the hard work that has gone into improving and maintaining the play park had been recognised.
“It is a well-used facility and an asset to the local area,” he said.
“I hope that future work we will be undertaking at the War Memorial Recreation Ground will be as successful.”
Dursley Town Council is now planning improvements to the play facilities on the War Memorial Recreation Ground, including the creation of a new children's play area.
A consultation has been launched by the council, inviting children to let them know how they like to play.
There are two short survey forms which can be completed on the council’s website, one for children and one for grown-ups, or collected from the council office.
Alternatively you can send in a photo of your favourite park or a drawing of what your dream park would look like.
