On Wednesday 7th August the Mayor of Felixstowe, Cllr Nick Barber re-opened the Gosford Way play area with the help of local children and families. Following refurbishment of a £265,000 project, three play areas in Felixstowe parks have now been given improved facilities.
The play areas have been fully refurbished with a range of items suitable for toddlers, juniors and teenagers. Cavendish Park has a new Multi-use Games Area and the play equipment at Gosford Way has been replaced with 14 new pieces. The project also includes improvements to Allenby Park play area, This includes replacing and widening of the 5-a-side pitch and additional equipment added to the existing play area.
Work on the project started in May after Felixstowe Town Council, East Suffolk Council and Suffolk Coastal Norse worked together to identify the three play areas in need of an upgrade as part of on-going investment in the area.
Good to see some of our council taxes going back into Felixstowe with genuine improvements. Let’s hope these areas are respected and used as they should be and not abused by vandals.
