More than £110,000 has been ploughed into three parks across the region by Mansfield District Council.

The Oak Tree estate now boasts an exciting new £65,000 play park with top-quality facilities for children aged two to twelve years, including swings, two multi-play units, a trampoline, rotating seesaw, roundabout, talk tubes, a spinning bowl and springers.

The new area, which is an extension to the existing play provision is totally fenced off with gate access.

In addition, the Bellamy Road play area has also benefitted from £10,000 of improvements, including a new set of swings, a multi-play unit and a new play surface.

Meanwhile at Manor Park, off Kingsley Avenue, Mansfield Woodhouse, more than £65,000 worth of improvements have been carried out thanks to £35,000 provided by Mansfield District Council and £30,000 provided by Nottinghamshire County Council Local Improvement Scheme (LIS) funding.

Coun Phil Shields, the portfolio holder for the environment at Mansfield District Council, said: “We are continually striving to improve and enhance our award winning parks.

“The new play areas at Oak Tree, Manor and Bellamy are a fantastic resource for local families and children, who can now enjoy top quality facilities.

“It’s great to see children of all ages enjoying these play areas. I would encourage everyone to come down and join in the fun.”
