The grant came from SITA Trust, which provides funding through the Landfill Communities Fund.
Work will start in the spring to provide a broader range of facilities and play experiences aimed towards junior children. The new designs will complement the existing range of equipment incorporating elements of wooden equipment, a climbing wall, spinning disc roundabout, natural play such as boulders, mounds/tunnels and sculptures, sensory chimes and more traditional pieces including springers and a slide.
Haysden Country Park covers an area of about 165 acres in the Medway Valley, to the west of Tonbridge, and encompasses a range of habitats including river, grassland, freshwater lakes, marshland and woodland. It is well used by the local community for dog walking, picnics, observation of wildlife and other recreation. Sailing is carried out on Haysden Llake and regulated fishing is also popular.
Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council's cabinet member for community services, Cllr Maria Heslop, said: "At a time when there's huge emphasis on keeping children active, this is exciting news and huge thanks go to SITA Trust for the funding which has enabled these new designs to become a reality.
"Haysden Country Park already has so much to offer its visitors but new and improved play equipment will enhance young visitors' enjoyment of the park and hopefully encourage even more families to choose Haysden Country Park as a place to spend their leisure time."
