Play Area Improvements

Upcoming upgrades to play areas in the Vale of Glamorgan

 

The Murch Play Area, Dinas Powys

Following a public consultation earlier in 2019 the work to upgrade this play area will begin on 16 December. Before Christmas all of the existing play equipment will be removed and the site secured so that work to upgrade the play area can begin in the first week of January with an expected completion in early February. Whilst the work is being undertaken the footpath between the bridge and the bowling green will be closed to ensure public safety.
