Community delight at revamped playpark

A playpark has been revamped and revitalised thanks to a project led by Westmorland and Furness Council.

The play area at Owlet Ash in Milnthorpe has been revamped and revitalised after consultation with the local residents’ association and children to see what they would like.

Locality Team Leader Polly Straker led the project and worked hard with supplier Proludic and South Lakes Housing to create this vibrant neighbourhood playground for one to 14-year-olds.

The total cost was £48,500, with £35,000 coming from the former South Lakeland District Council’s Capital Play Fund, £3,000 from South Lakes Housing, £10,000 from the Walney Wind Farm Community Fund and £500 from the locality budget of South Lakeland District Councillor Pete McSweeney.

Councillor Dyan Jones, Cabinet Member for Customer and Waste Services, said: “I am delighted to see these improvements at Owlet Ash. Parks and open spaces really do contribute to the excellent quality of life in Westmorland and Furness and it’s always great to see communities in action – playgrounds like this are simply brilliant.

“Again we see the benefits of working with partners and communities, creating great places to live, work and thrive.”
