Saxilby Play Area Development

Memorial Field Play Area Re-Development 2017/18

Following the hard work of volunteers and councillors particularly on the Play Area Working Group, we are pleased to announce that our new park will be installed in February/March 2018.

The equipment has been selected based on community consultation and will be funded through grants, fundraising donations and a Council contribution.

The park is set to include a zip wire, a tower unit with slide and fireman’s pole, toddler and junior swings, a basket swing, a springer and a roundabout.

Grants have been secured from the following organisations to enable the project to be completed:

  • National Lottery, Awards for All
  • West Lindsey District Council with Community Lincs
  • Lincolnshire Co-operative
  • Tesco
  • One Stop
  • Lincolnshire Playing Field Association
  • Aviva
  • Waitrose
  • Police Mutual
  • Contribution from Kompan after coming 3rd in their national competition

After the park is installed, fencing will be added in the Spring, along with planting.

Future Plans: Wheeled Park, MUGA, and West Croft Drive Play Area

Longer term plans also include a wheeled park (skate/scooter/BMX), multi-use games area (MUGA) and gym equipment, with designs being created and funding options being explored. 

At the West Croft Drive recreation area we are hoping to install items including a climbing wall, slides and picnic benches. These projects will start after the Memorial Field Play Area project is completed.
