Topping Up For Safe Play In Broxtowe

Topping Up For Safe Play In Broxtowe

22/08/2017 With the summer holidays in full swing, Broxtowe Borough Council is ensuring its parks are safe by topping up the bark surface on all of its play areas.

Approximately 75 tonnes of additional play bark will be added to the Council’s 34 play areas to ensure that children have a cushioned surface if they fall around the play area bark

“Safety is a priority at these much loved play areas and the additional bark will help ensure that our young residents can enjoy some fresh air and play time and parents can be reassured,” said Councillor Martin Plackett, Vice Chair of the Leisure and Environment Committee, who went along to help the Parks Team install the bark at Queen Elizabeth Park in Stapleford and Mansfield Road Recreation Ground in Eastwood.

Play bark is a natural woodland product and is sourced sustainably. The top up is part of the annual play area maintenance programme.
