A popular park is to undergo a huge transformation.

Little Brow Park, located at the bottom of Little Brow and Queens Avenue, most recently had work completed in 2021 when councillors used Section 106 money from The Last Drop development to invest in a new piece of equipment, and the full resurfacing of the park.

At the time, a further £70k was used to completely overhaul Stonesteads Park.

Now, local councillors are using money from their Area Forum, provided by the previous Conservative administration, to make further enhancements to the park.

Read some of our top stories below:

Under current plans, old swing seating will be replaced, new benches provided, and the park will be given a full repaint.

And, to further help make play accessible to all, new benches will have space for those on a wheelchair, the bucket see-saw will be refreshed, and British Sign Language signage activities will be installed.

Cllr Nadim Muslim said “This work is part of our ongoing programme of investing in our green spaces and parks.

“We know Little Brow is a well-used park and so by sprucing it up and replacing some well-used equipment, we hope more children will be able to enjoy this area.”

Outside the immediate play area of the park, new ‘tank stopper’ goalposts will also be installed, enabling children to play football, with shrubbery cutback.

New picnic benches will be added and new paths created, to avoid walking over the grass when it is wet.

Cllr Samantha Connor added “We previously invested in Little Brow when we overhauled Stonesteads park in 2021.

“Now, we’re taking our plans further and giving children some new ways to play, with the new goalposts and replacement swing seating.”

Cllr Amy Cowen said: “Making play accessible for all is so important to us.

“That’s why the enhancements we’re making to Little Brow will include new activity signage that British Sign Language compliant and some of our new benches be wheelchair accessible.”
