The revamped play area at Lawn Road in Eastleigh is now open to the public again in time for families to enjoy during the half term holiday.
The major refurbishment of the Lawn Road play park has been part of a wider programme to deliver new and improved play areas around the Borough, we've worked alongside contractors to make Lawn Road play area in Boyatt Wood more exciting and attractive.
Although the park is fully open, some of the temporary security fencing may remain in place for a while, but enough has been removed to allow complete access to the whole park.
Over the coming months there are a few minor tasks that will need to be completed but these are dependent on the time of year and weather, such as seeding the bare earth areas for example. The grass will take a while to grow but this work can be finished without further closures to the playground.
Chair of Eastleigh Local Area Committee Cllr Alex Bourne said: “We are so happy to be able to re-open Lawn Road play area to local families again. This project has had its challenges, but we hope that the park will now be a safe and fun place for children living nearby to enjoy.”
The work included installation of new planting beds and the introduction of exotic plants, including palm trees and bamboo, to bring a garden theme to the popular local facility. The ideas for the enhancements to the park came from suggestions by members of the community during the planning stages.
