Armoury Rd Recreation Ground

July 29, 2021

Wicksteed was declared successful with their tender submission for the play area at Armoury Road Recreation Ground. The existing fenced play area was tired and in need of refurbishment. The tender brief was looking for a play area suitable for all ages and abilities and new safety surfacing.

The existing surrounding fencing was retained and existing swings restored. The site was then rejuvenated with brand new, colourful, fleck wet pour surfacing. New items of play equipment added to the site include a Junior Mamba multi-play unit with steel slides and ramp access, a younger children’s multi-play unit, an inclusive swirl roundabout and much more.
