First look at Highbridge park's new-look £140,000 playing area

Residents in Highbridge are to be asked for their views about plans for a £140,000 revamp of Apex Wildlife Park's children's play area.

As first reported by in January, the facility is to get a revamp thanks to £60,000 of lottery funding and a further £80,000 from local property developer contributions.

The design of the new 'playscape' has been unveiled this week, as pictured above, by landscape architects Swan Paul Partnership Ltd.

It comes a period of consultation with Barnardo's South West and local children to help create a child-friendly design.

The concept plans include new mounds, a new bridge, tunnel, embankment slides, log hide and den, climbing pieces, as well as pod swings.

Work is expected to commence in June 2009 and be completed in time for the school summer holidays in July 2009.

Comments and questions will be welcomed from local residents during an open meeting to be held at the Apex Park Information point on Wednesday March 18th between 3pm and 6.30pm.
