Blackpool's Stanley Park set for £400,000 play makeover

Blackpool Council is looking for contractors to create a new adventure playground in Stanley Park.

The local authority has been awarded £2.6 million and Play Pathfinder status by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF).

One of the main elements of the programme is to develop an adventure play area in Stanley Park.

The council needs a contractor to deliver the £200,000-£400,000 project.

The play space will focus on 8-13-year-olds but also involve inclusive provision for children in older and younger categories, and pay particular attention to the inclusion of disabled children.

The project has been split into two phases. Phase 1 will comprise the outdoor adventure play area, which has to be completed by 31 March 2010. Phase 2 consists of the indoor play area and must be completed by 31 March 2011.

The deadline is 31 December.
