Children's play area

Two children’s play areas – one at Burnham-on-Sea and one in Bridgwater – will be getting a make-over as Sedgemoor District Council makes further investments into its parks and play areas at Crosses Penn and Marsa Way.  The two projects are due to start within the next month and are likely to take four to six weeks to be completed, subject to favourable weather conditions.

Crosses Penn in Burnham-on-Sea will see the existing toddler climbing unit, roundabout and see-saw removed and in their place will be a new climbing unit with three slides, a wheelchair friendly roundabout, four way see-saw, pendulum swing, assault course, wobble board, overhead rotator and two new access gates.

Scott Mason, Sedgemoor’s Parks Development Team Leader said ‘this is a really exciting project which will provide facilities for all. We know this is a popular play area and some of the items were of a considerable age, hence their replacement. We also wanted to provide further play opportunities at this key site including a roundabout suitable for those in wheelchairs. The project will cost £50,000.

Marsa Way in Bridgwater will have its existing train unit removed which requires costly repairs and be replaced with a new climbing frame featuring three accesses and a slide, a toddler swing and some interactive talk tubes featuring a mobile phone design. Lizzie Bull, Parks Assistant for Sedgemoor said ‘whilst this is a small site, we wanted to broaden the play opportunities available by introducing some new items of equipment’. The project will cost £15,000.

These projects have been funded by Sedgemoor District Council and the works will be carried out by Wicksteed Leisure Ltd.
