£150,000 investment at Ebourne Recreation Ground and Bates Memorial Park
With the half-term holiday fast approaching there’s even more on offer to get local children outdoors with the opening of brand new play areas at Bates Memorial Park and Ebourne Recreation Ground.
The £150,000 investment by Warwick District Council, has seen the installation of new play equipment including swings, slides and climbing frames, as well as improvements to the footpaths, the introduction of wildflower meadows, new benches and bins and improved entrances to both parks.
The new equipment is part of a wider investment in parks and open spaces by our Green Spaces team, with extensive work already completed at Redland Recreation Ground, Cubbington waterworks, Villiers Street, Priory Pools in Warwick and Wych Elm Drive which has included new play areas, benches, bins, footpaths and gym equipment.
Work is also underway at The Holt, Saltisford Common, Mason Avenue and an additional £200,000 investment is planned for Victoria Park.
Councillor Moira-Ann Grainger, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services, commented: “I am so pleased to see that these fantastic new facilities are now open to local people and visitors to Kenilworth. Though there have been some delays the play equipment is now ready to use, and just in time for May half-term. The new equipment, as well as the benches and improved footpaths ensure that these parks will continue to be enjoyed by families. This work is proof of our continued investment in parks and open spaces across the district.”
