Installation of a new games area and skate park is due to begin shortly at a playing field in Kingswood.
Work to install a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) an
d small skate park at Court Road playing fields is set to begin on 5th March. The new facilities arranged by South Gloucestershire Council are being paid for out of monies
given to the Council by developers who have built a number of large housing developments in the area.
In addition to the MUGA and skate park, new off-street parking provision will be installed on Hopps Road and the path around the perimeter of the playing field will be completed. Part of the path and a number of pieces of outdoor exercise equipment were installed in early 2010 and a few months ago a wooden barrier was installed at the end of Tippetts Road to stop cars being driven onto the playing field.
Local councillors for the area, Gareth Manson, Andy Perkins and Pat Rooney (Labour, Woodstock) said;
“We’re really pleased to see that these plans have finally come together as it has been a long time in the making. We hope that these new facilities will be well received and meet the needs of an increased population in the area”
Once work has been completed to the playing field, plans will be drawn-up by the council for enhancements to the playing field between Claypool Road and Pettigrove Road. The council has plans for improved landscaping, and paths to create a more park-like atmosphere.
