Ipswich Borough Council reopens play area after refresh

Published7th October 2021

Work started on refreshing Ipswich’s Brunswick Park play area last month and now it has welcomed its first children.

The play area, for children aged 2 to 7 years old, has reopened with a new impact absorbent surface to improve safety as well as several new pieces of equipment including swings, slides and springers.

A climber for children aged up to 12 years old has also been installed outside of the fenced play area.

Work to refresh the play area started last month following a consultation with local residents and school children.

Councillor Phil Smart, Ipswich Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Parks, said: “We’re pleased to be able to reopen Brunswick Park’s play area following its recent refresh – local residents and children were keen to see it improved and were consulted on plans before work started.

“The new equipment provides plenty of opportunities for children of all ages and abilities to play together and it was great to see them enjoying it.”
