New play area to be installed at Cliffe Castle, Keighley
4:00pm Saturday 2nd February 2013 in News
A new children's play area is to be installed in the historic grounds of Cliffe Castle Park in Keighley.
The site will include a crawl tunnel, climbing wall, basket swing, wooden train and ship, and sandpit. There will also be a wheelchair-accessible roundabout.
The equipment will replace the existing play area, which is in poor condition, and will be relocated to a more accessible space that is better suited to a wider age range of children, numbers and activity demands.
The relocation of the play area will also help Bradford Council's Heritage Lottery funded plans for the park's regeneration.
The equipment, which will be installed in March, is being funded by the Cliffe Castle Park Conservation Group with support from the Council, Yorventure Landfill Communities Fund, Yorwaste Ltd and Wren Landfill Communities Fund.
Councillor Andrew Thornton, the Council's executive member for sport and leisure, said: "This new facility will be somewhere special for children to go.
"Young people have been involved in this project from the very start so it's great to see it now coming to fruition for them and for children in years to come."
