Bridlington Street Play Area is an open access park which is overlooked by residential properties. The park has existing play equipment which was relatively new. After consultation with local residents and children it was observed that only children under the age of six and over the age of 14 were catered for. Local people felt that children between the age of 6 and 14 had very little to do and were excluded from playing there due to the lack of suitable equipment.
Groundwork Greater Nottingham was employed to work in partnership with the local residents association (BOBS) to regenerate and improve the existing park.
The existing play equipment and MUGA were retained and additional equipment was installed to enhance the play area, this included a new climbing structure and basket swing. New seating, paths and plating were installed to regenerate the area. The existing MUGA was re-located and re-surfaced to improve accessibility. These improvements have created a park which is much more inclusive, and one which the local community is proud of.
