We want your input on new playground equipment at Houghton Hall Park

Monday, 27 November 2023

We would like your views on which type of play equipment should be installed in Houghton Hall Park.

Set in 42 acres of parkland and woodland, the new play area will include play equipment for children aged 6 to 14 years old.

We continually aim to improve its play facilities and provide quality play experiences for children. We are currently looking to upgrade the wooden net structure that was removed from the park for user safety.

Councillor Rebecca Hares, our Executive Member for Health, and Community liaison said:

With 3 innovative designs vying for your vote, this is your chance to help us to shape the future playground experience for our young adventurers.

As we strive for excellence in all of our play spaces, we invite you to be a part of crafting a vibrant, safe and adventurous play area for children aged 6 to 14. Within the bounds of safety, the park becomes a playground of endless possibilities, where adventurous play nurtures resilience, fuels imagination and provides responsible exploration.

Your vote counts towards a reimagined play area, ensuring quality and safety in every swing, slide, and climb. Join us in sculpting a new chapter of fun for the next generation.

The survey is open until Sunday 31 December 2023. For queries regarding the play improvements, please contact the Leisure Services Team on 0300 300 8000 or email hhp@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk.
