Work to create a new play area has started on Huthwaite Welfare Park

As part of the Council’s £110k investment into Huthwaite Welfare Park, work has begun this week to create a brand new play area.

The initial stage of the works on the upper part of the park will see the installation of exciting new equipment including a zip wire, adventure trail, toddler and junior climbing multi units, and a single point swing.

The new equipment should be ready to use by early next year.

Cllr Tom Hollis, Ward Member for Huthwaite and Brierley, said “I am so excited to see this state of the art play area come to life. We really listened to what local residents wanted here and I hope they will enjoy it for years to come once it is completed.
“Huthwaite Welfare Park is just the latest of our parks to be refurbished and modernised as part of the Council’s wider £3million investment into parks across the District. We are investing a huge £110k on this park and bringing in new dynamic equipment that I’m sure our younger residents will absolutely love.”
