Play area in Lutterworth set for revamp

Published Tuesday 16 July 2019

A popular play area in Lutterworth is set to be enhanced and updated as part of a programme of play improvements across the district.

Artists’ impressions have been released of what the Mulberry Close play area could look like as part of Harborough District Council plans to revitalise the space.

Ageing equipment is being replaced and new, inclusive equipment is being added, along with new surfacing.

The play area will close for three weeks from Tuesday 23 July 2019. The Council will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum during the work.

Councillor Jonathan Bateman, Harborough District Council’s lead on open spaces, said: “These are much-needed improvements and, whilst we have had to carry out the work during the school holidays due to timescales on delivery of equipment; children will have plenty of time to enjoy the new equipment, throughout the school holidays, once the work is complete.”

In recent months, Harborough District Council has continued its investment programme across the district with work carried out to improve play areas in Fleckney, Great Glen and Market Harborough.

PlaMulberry close play area in Lutterworthy areas in Thurnby and Broughton Astley will also be improved as part of the programme.
