A new play area is set to arrive in Belvedere, after the town lost its beloved splash park.

Residents were left heartbroken in February, when the council announced no bidders had been found to take over the popular park, which had originally closed in 2014 over safety fears.

Now councillors are set to approve plans for Belvedere Beach, a new ‘unique’ park - which will include a ‘water play unit’.

Set to become a fully inclusive park, it will include sensory and educational play areas to appeal to all youngsters.

“It has taken time to look at all the options available and to seek the fundin we needed to get the project off the ground and we wanted to get it right” commented community safety, environment and leisure councillor, Peter Craske.

“We listened to local residents and groups and we now have an amazing design that will provide a place for children to play all year around that is sustainable and affordable.”

The new all-year-round park is set to open in autumn 2017, and has been funded by Cory Environmental Trust in Britain.
