A new play area is set to be installed in Higginson Park, Marlow in early June 2023.

Weather permitting, the council aims to have it completed and ready for enjoyment before the summer school holidays.

The design of the new accessible play area was informed by consultation through local shareholders and will see a bigger, better play area with inclusive equipment.

The new play area will feature:

  • A large multi-play ship unit with gliding track ride
  • Wheelchair accessible roundabout
  • Jumper Trampoline
  • ‘Cocowave’ Giant Rope Swing
  • Swings including a ‘you and me’ seat and an inclusive ‘Swingseat Mirage’

The new play area equipment includes several items crafted from recycled materials. For added convenience, the play area will also be connected to the park café and toilet facilities with a new dedicated pathway.

Clive Harriss, Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure at Buckinghamshire Council, said: ‘We have placed an order with the successful bidder, and we’re delighted to announce that the refurbishment work will commence on Monday 5[th] June[2023].

Upon completion, the new children’s play area will provide an engaging, secure, and inclusive environment for children of all ages and abilities to explore, learn and have fun. Featuring innovative play equipment, sensory experiences, and accessible design elements, it will foster a sense of community while promoting physical activity and social interaction among our young residents.

This investment shows our commitment to providing all families in Buckinghamshire with first-rate play area facilities.
