New Lease of Life for Paget Road Play Area


Published 05 August 2014


The Vale of Glamorgan Council is due to begin work early next year to refurbish facilities at the Paget Road play area.


Under plans announced this week local residents will see the upgrade of the existing play area and a range of new facilities added including fitness equipment, a multi-sport court and a skate area.


The overall aim of the project is to provide a modern, high quality play environment in a safe and controlled setting that can be enjoyed by all ages of the community.


Cllr Gwyn John, the Vale of Glamorgan Council Cabinet Member for Parks, said: “This exciting plan will deliver a first class open space and play area for the people of Penarth.


"In addition to the new facilities there will be additional seating, bins and cycle stands to aid residents’ enjoyment of the park, while the introduction of street lighting along the length of the existing footpath will ensure safety and security for all visitors.”


The works planned represent a significant upgrade to the existing facilities that have been in use since 1995. The Council will be using funds generated by the nearby Penarth Heights development to deliver the project. It is expected that work will commence in early spring 2015.
