£33,000 project gives play area a new lease of life 


Stroud Town Council has given a play area a new lease of life.

It has installed new play equipment in the field at The Leazes, behind The Cotswold Playhouse, off Parliament Street.

The £33,000 project includes new swings and slide as well as a zip wire and climbing frame.

“The existing equipment was a bit tired and reaching the end of its life,” said Chris Woolner, Green Spaces Manager.

“Two years ago, we ran consultation events with the community to find out what people wanted. This helped us look at things for children of different ages and put forward options for the community to vote on.”

The installation of the new equipment was delayed by the pandemic. The Green Spaces team also did some work to help wildlife in the park including tree and hedge planting.

“It’s wonderful to finally see the play area in use and children of all ages making the most of the new equipment. Green spaces such as these are so important for our wellbeing and this is now an area that can be enjoyed by the whole family,” said Stroud Deputy Mayor Camilla Hale.
