Cullen Close play park, East Hull, is set to receive £30,000 of new play equipment and refurbishment.
The refurbishment will include: new play equipment, new surfacing, two benches, new bins, a netball hoop and some landscaping.
A start date for the work hasn’t been set yet.
Holderness ward councillor Jackie Dad, who has been pushing for new play equipment for over a year, was delighted to have secured the work and the funding.
Jackie said: “The Cullen Close play park has been in urgent need of an upgrade for years and wasn’t properly maintained. People in the area really wanted to see improvements made to it and I’m glad to see something happening.
“I have been working on the plans for the play park for a while, but other councillors didn’t see it as a priority. It was only when I arranged a meeting in October to finally identify the funding and push for final plans that things got going.
“Hopefully residents will be happy with the improvements. In the future I will work hard to ensure that the equipment is maintained properly.”
The Cullen Close play park is mainly used by residents of: Corona Drive, Hathersage Road, Burbage Avenue, Motherwell Close, Munroe Close Thornhill Drive, Moffatt Close and Cullen Close and Lambwath Road.
