Woodville Road smallBoston Big Local, along with Boston Borough Council and WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental Limited) have funded a £40,000 refit at Central Park. As well as new safety surfaces, the park has been fitted with new play equipment including pieces that are suitable for children with disabilities.

The improvements have seen the installation of roundabouts, play panels, a donkey springer ride, and a seesaw. The work has also included the resurfacing of pathways and play perimeter areas. Older children have benefited with the installation of a gooseneck basketball area, with tarmac base.

Boston Big Local has supported this initiative as part of its theme to create a more attractive environment by improving local amenities and open spaces in the Boston Big Local area. The new equipment will allow children to have a better and more exciting play experience and encourage them to be active outdoors.

Boston Big Local Chair, Richard Tory, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to build on our many consultations with local residents and put into practice their suggestions on how we can improve the area.”

The new play area was officially “launched” in June by park visitors and children from ABC day nursery.
