Nobel Road

This project has regenerated a poor quality open space in a densely populated residential estate in the Clifton area of Nottingham. The project has improved access to good quality play facilities for local young people, and has assisted in reducing the fear of anti-social behaviour amongst the local.

Groundwork worked in partnership with Nottingham City Council and NORDTRA (the local tenants and residents association) to secure additional funding, complete consultation, and spend time developing a project which would improve Angell Green Park in Clifton.

The park was over 15 years old and contained poor quality equipment, with a Multi User Games Area which was poorly placed in its position and orientation, and a toddler play area which had limited play value with outdated equipment.

Through ongoing consultation, fundraising and development, a site is being created which will improve play and sports facilities for children of all ages within the community. The project is still ongoing; with phase 1 complete, phase two nearing completion on site, and phase three due to start on site early next year.

The first phase of work involved the re-design of the existing Multi-User Games Area to a more suitable location and layout on the site, and the creation of a new toddler play area with areas of mounding, new equipment and more informal play features. The second phase involves the creation of new equipment for older children, with agility units, a scramble net, cosmo unit, and new areas of tree planting. The third phase, which is still in development will include seating and shelter elements for older children and teenagers.
