New play area for Limeside Park
Published by Emma Baylis for Contour Homes in Housing and also in Communities, Environment
Limeside Friends of the Park in Oldham are celebrating this week after receiving almost £50,000 from Community Spaces.
The Community Spaces programme helps community groups in England create or improve green, open spaces to enhance people’s quality of life. The money will go towards creating a play area for toddlers and children to use at Limeside Park.
Sarah Furbey from social landlord Contour Homes and secretary of ‘Friends of the Park’ said: “We are so pleased to hear this decision. It’s great news as the younger children of Limeside are finally going to get the play area they deserve.”
The play area will be situated behind the Multi-Use Games area and fenced off in a large square with a diagonal path running through the middle. The group hope to get additional funding to install some junior equipment in the other half of the fenced off area.
Sarah adds, “We are planning to have the toddler play area ready in time for October half-term and are currently busy planning a big opening celebration day for everyone to enjoy.”
