We’ve run this event every year since 2005 and it’s become very popular with local families.  It started as a fund raiser for new playground kit and we enjoyed it so much that we carry on, raising funds for the Hotwells & Cliftonwood Community Association.

Argyle Place Play Park Improvements

We’re really pleased that the work has started to renovate the Argyle Place Park.  They’re starting with improvements to the stepped seating area, removing the rotting wooden steps and replacing them with brick which will last much longer.  The flowerbed also being reduced in size and the fencing will be replaced.  There will be more benches and seating in the top corner.

The old see-saw and spinning bowl will be replaced by a small swing.  New surfacing will be laid under all new play equipment to meet the new safety standards. Repairs will be made to other parts of the park where there was slight subsidence.

The Council’s budget for this project has been very tight so they’re unable to spend anything on renovations to the kick about area. Once this make-over is finished we’ll have to look at a new fund raising effort for rotivating, new soil and reseeding this area.

See the latest design here and click on this link to zoom in.  The new bars will be moving further to the left towards the house wall to open up more space in the middle of the park.
