Work started this week on a £70,000 upgrade in Cintra Park.
The multi-use games area at Cintra Park which opened in July 2006 has now reached the end of its life and is to be refurbished. As well as a new surface, new perimeter fencing will also be installed and the floodlighting will be inspected.
The work will be carried out the work during May and June, thus avoiding the football season and the school summer holidays. Regular hirers should not be affected by the five week closure as alternative pitches will be offered. It is anticipated that the courts will be open to coincide with the start of Wimbledon.
In addition, the bark chippings in the play area will be replaced by a wetpour/rubber surface. This will reduce maintenance costs as there will no longer be an annual top up required. In addition a new large basket style swing to replace the rotating unit.
