The renewal of Scarborough Park playground is progressing and on track to be reopened in early spring.

The park has been closed since May while a four-month upgrade takes place. Most of the equipment has been installed, with the 5.8m tower expected to be put in place this week.

The new playground apparatus includes a mouse wheel, eagles’ lair climbing net, swing set, carousel, dancing snake rope swing, four spring toys, a new rocking horse, the refurbished old rocking horse and a nature play area.

The rubber safety surfacing, asphalt paths and landscaping, including irrigation and turf, will happen over the next few weeks as weather conditions allow.
