Work to create the new play area will begin on 4th September!
During the works, the wider site will remain open. Barriers will be installed around work areas for safety, but machinery and vehicles will be moving around the space on weekdays so please do take extra care if you’re visiting. Weather permitting, the team are hoping to be finished by the end of December – but we’ll keep you posted on here, so do keep checking back for updates.
Funding for the Summerseat Play Area project has been secured. The work has been out for tender, and has now been awarded to a local contractor. We’re really hoping that work will begin on site in May 2023 and, as soon as we have the start date confirmed, we’ll let you know!
It’s been a while since we’ve updated you about the Summerseat Play Area project, but work has been continuing! A funding application has now been completed and submitted, and we hope to have more news in the next few months. We’ll update you again as soon as we find out more 🙂
Thanks to everyone who has already completed the survey about the proposed changes at Summerseat Play Area. We’ll be closing the survey on Friday 21st January, so if you haven’t already responded, please do log on and let us have your thoughts before then. You can click here to access the design and survey: Summerseat Play Area Design Survey
The survey only takes a few minutes, but it would be great if you could share your thoughts and feedback so that we can make sure that we get the design right for you. A copy of the plan is below – you can click on the image to enlarge it. Thanks again for your support!

Thanks to everyone, especially the children at Summerseat Methodist Church, who shared their suggestions about the Summerseat Play Area changes. We now have a design that we would like to share with you, and it would be fantastic if you could take a look and let us know what you think.

We’ve had some fantastic play area designs from the children at Summerseat Methodist School. Suggestions for the space have been passed to the play space designer and she will come up with a plan and share it with everyone soon. Thank you to all of the children who shared their ideas – here’s a few for you to take a look at:
We had a really positive meeting with the head teacher at Summerseat Methodist School this morning. We talked about raising the profile of the play area in Summerseat and also about involving the school children in the design process. The children will be helping us design the space by answering a few questions about play in Summerseat and even drawing their ideal play space – we can’t wait to see what they come up with!
As well as the feedback from the school children, it would be really helpful to get feedback from as many other adults, families, park users and visitors as we can. There’s a very short survey that you can complete below. It only takes a few minutes, but it would be great if you could click on the link and share your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks in advance – your help makes a huge difference to the project.

We are now working with The Summerseat Park Project group on a plan to improve the Summerseat play area. There is already a lot of local interest in the project, and we plan to reach out and consult with the wider community about the play area design over the next few months. We love helping communities make the most of their outside play space and we’re all really looking forward to working on this one.
If you have any questions or suggestion about the project, please comment below and someone will get back to you.
