Exciting new play equipment for Peacock Meadow

Councillor Patrick Nicholson joins ward councillor colleagues and council staff at the revamped Peacock Meadow park

Another Plympton play park has had a major makeover as part of an ongoing improvement programme.

Peacock Meadow, off Newnham road, has new equipment that focuses on play for younger children. Additions include a tower with a fireman’s pole and slide, a rotating sand table and a spinner bowl. A group tyre swing and dynamic flexus unit has also been added next to the skating area for older children.

Plans for the park were designed with community feedback in mind and constructed by consultation play company Kompan.

These improvements are part of Hands Up For Plymouth Play, a project led by Plymouth City Council that focusses on improving play facilities across the city.

Councillor Patrick Nicholson, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Strategic Transport, Housing and Planning, said: “The improvements to the park are looking fantastic and it’s a real honour to have played a part in making these works happen.

“This park will benefit youngsters for several generations to come and everyone involved should be very proud of themselves.”

Throughout the project, the design of each play park has aimed to complement the location, creating multiple play experiences which are both fun and safe.

As the scheme continues, and as some of the sites undergo a complete refurbishment, they will have to be closed temporarily while work is carried out. Further details and expected dates will be available on posters which will go up around the play areas.
