Revamped areas at Woodthorpe Park unveiled as £100k improvement works continue


A number of revamped areas have opened up this week as part of £100k improvements being carried out at Woodthorpe Park.

The works, carried out by the Nottingham City Council parks and neighbourhood teams, have been funded jointly by FCC Communities and Nottingham City Council, following extensive consultation with park users, the friends group and local residents.

One of the main improvements is an enlarged play area with new equipment, including a slide and more swings, suitable for toddlers and junior school aged children.

Cllr Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said: “We are so pleased to have been able to respond to feedback from the public to improve Woodthorpe Park in this way. We are very grateful to FCC Communities Foundation for their support and contributions which have helped our teams to make this happen.

“Woodthorpe is one of our many Green Flag Parks in the city and we are keen to make sure this standard is upheld by constantly reviewing and improving our services and experience for visitors. I really hope the community enjoys the improved space and amenities we have created for them.”

Cheryl Raynor, Grant Manager from FCC Communities Foundation Ltd said: “It’s great to see the playground once again looking great and ready to be used by the local community, the enhancements are fantastic. FCC Communities Foundation is always happy to consider grant applications for projects that make a difference to local communities and this is a great example of what can be achieved.”
