King George's Park, Bramcote

Bramcote will benefit from £120,000 worth of park improvements thanks to a £50,000 grant from WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund and £70,000 from Broxtowe Borough Council.

The funding has been secured to help improve King George V Park, Bramcote. The funding will include a new outdoor fitness area and a brand new, state of the art play area.

The improvements, at King George V Park will include a new outdoor fitness and brand new, state of the art play area. Local residents were asked last year what type of facilities they would like to see on site and this feedback has helped shape plans which will be displayed on site shortly when they have been finalised.
