Help shape the future of play at Whittlesey's Water Tower Play Park

Residents are being asked to have their say on plans to breathe new life into one of Fenland's oldest play parks.

Fenland District Council wants to revamp the Water Tower Play Park at Whittlesey - and is seeking views on what extra play equipment should be installed if funding can be secured.

Getting feedback from the local community is the first step in developing the park, with information gathered helping to shape bids for funding to deliver the improvements identified.

Last week, the park's swings were re-painted by the Council's grounds maintenance contractors, ISS World, to improve how the area looks in the short term.

But the equipment is aging and local Town Councillor Ray Whitwell is among those keen to improve the space for Whittlesey's young people and their parents.

Councillor Peter Murphy, Fenland District Council's portfolio holder for environment, said: "This is one of Fenland's older play parks. Whilst we have improved several of the play parks in Whittlesey over the past couple of years, this one does need some work to bring it up to modern standards.

"This is an opportunity for the community to get involved and shape what is put into the park should a funding bid prove successful, so I'd urge them to have their say."

The play park consultation runs until the end of February and will include seeking the views of pupils from local schools.
