Brand new splash play equipment is to be installed into the Priory Park play area this summer to replace the current system which is showing signs of wear and tear.

Priory Park new splash play area designInstallation will take place 15 May to 1 July 2017. During this time the playground will be closed for safety reasons.

The new area will include wet pour rubber flooring made up of two colours to depict sand and water, making the existing ship look close to the beach.

Greenspaces Services Manager, Emanuel Flecken said “We apologise to park visitors for the inconvenience the temporary closure will cause. However, the exciting new play facility will be well worth waiting for. The new splash pad design sprays water at a variety of heights, pressures and patterns and it is sure to be a great addition to the playground.

“Whilst the facility is closed we would encourage those looking for an alternative play area to take a visit to Memorial Park, Redhill. This open space boasts a full children’s play area, free to use tennis and multi-use game areas plus a trim trail. There is also a café pavilion with toilets and an outdoor seating area.”

More information on all open spaces within the borough is available on the parks and countryside page.
