We asked

In Summer 2021 Parks and Countryside consulted the local community about refurbishments to Rivelin Valley Playground. We asked firstly, how the two main play units should be replaced with the current funding, and secondly, what other improvements local people would like to see in the future when further funding becomes available. 

You said

Over 500 local people responded to the survey and told us how much they enjoy visiting Rivelin playground. You told us it needs uplifting and some of the equipment is old and tired. You would also like the playground to better cater for children with additional needs, both physical and sensory wise. Many famillies said they love the natural areas of the playground and asked that we make improvements for naturalistic play. We received many positive comments about the toddler unit and learned that families and carers visit Rivelin playground specifically for the under fives to use this equipment. We were asked if there was any way this unit could be upgraded kept. 

We did

We have listened to what respondents said about the toddler unit and have found a company that can re-paint the unit so it can be restored rather than replaced. The old and tired mid size junior unit will be replaced with a modern version offering older children opportunities to climb, swing and slide. https://www.sutcliffeplay.co.uk/equipment/the-four-towers/

We are adding equipment for children who are less mobile including a basket swing and inclusive swing seat. We are installing some better surfacing around the embankment slide and trim trail so that bad weather doesn't prevent use of the equipment. To future proof the playground, we are asking a Landscape Architect to design a vision of how the playground could look if additional funds become available. A big part of this will be to show how the natural elements of the playground could be enhanced and improved to achieve local people's ambitions for more naturalistic and free play. We will promote this vision/design when it's available in Summer 2022.
