Wheeled Park

Memorial Field Play Area 

Following the hard work of volunteers and councillors, particularly on the Play Area Working Group, our park has been installed and is being enjoyed. The park includes a zip wire, a tower unit with slide and fireman’s pole, toddler and junior swings, a basket swing, a springer and a roundabout. The project has invested over £50,000 into the community.

Fencing has been re-installed by Stirlin Developments, the Foss Flyer and see-saw have been refurbished by VTF ltd with the assistance of SG Haulage and 24/7 Selfstore and installed in the park. 

  • The last section of fencing will be installed, now the Foss Flyer has been installed in the park. 
  • More picnic benches, signage and a bin have been installed. 
  • Further cycle racks will be installed by the park entrance.

Westcroft Green Space 

Due to the Church Road housing development, there has been a lot of disruption and work being carried out on Westcroft green space by the developer. When the work is completed and the land is restored back to an acceptable standard, there will be an opportunity to improve and enhance the area. Due to the wet ground conditions over winter, remedial works from the developer are still outstanding and expected to be completed in spring.

Initial consultation has suggested a climbing wall, slides, gym/trail equipment and picnic benches. This project will be progressed after the Memorial Field Play Area and wheeled park project are completed, as these are in progress and already have some funding in place.  

If residents want to move things forward more quickly one option would be to set up a Working Group to fund raise and develop the plans for the area. Please get in touch if you are interested in setting a group up. 


Future plans include a multi-use games area (MUGA), which is included in the Neighbourhood Development Plan as a project. This is a longer-term project.
