Leeside playground improvement works completed

The £14k improvement works at Leeside playground are now complete, thanks to funding from the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe ward budget and funds awarded following a successful bid to the council submitted by ward councillors, which was informed by residents’ responses to a consultation in early 2021.

It wasn't financially possible to deliver all of the new equipment requested by residents - such as a zip wire and roundabout - but there is a new 'spin-a-bounce' see-saw, balance beams, new 'wear pads' under the swings and 'Ecotumble' surfacing (made from shredded recycled tyres) around the new and existing equipment. This is on the back of feedback from residents that making the areas around the equipment free from mud would make a big difference in creating a more enjoyable space for children to play.
