Council to go out to tender for play schemes and park improvements

Bath and North East Somerset Council is to install £365,000 of play equipment at parks.


Old swings and slides will be replaced in Victoria Park, Hedgemead and Pennyquick and in 12 other locations.

Other locations are Firs Field, Kelson’s Field, Lymore Gardens, Mount Road and Sandpits.

There will also be improvements in Sydney Gardens and Alexandra Park.

The council is asking people to have their say on the improvements during various open events at the parks.

Jane Robson is in charge of Bath’s play equipment and says each individual site will go out to tender and no contracts have been awarded yet.
