Broadowler Lane play area officially opened
Broadowler play area official opening
Broadowler Lane play
area was officially reopened this morning, following a £59,000 upgrade.
Work to transform the run-down Ossett playground began at the end of January,
after consulting with local residents on how best to improve the area.
The play area has now been transformed. The old play area has been replaced
with a mix of timber and metal equipment suitable for both younger children and
junior school aged children. It has also benefitted from new swings, play
equipment with slides, a basket swing as well as rocking and spinning features.
A new safety surface is in place as well as a tarmac pathway covered with
educational graphics. There’s also new bins, benches and safety gates.
The Council supported the Broadowler Tenants and Residents Association to secure
funding from WREN’s FCC Community Acton Fund plus match funding from the recent
Sunnydale Mills development. WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards
grants through the landfill communities fund.
Cummings, Wakefield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Communities,
said: “I am delighted that the Council, in partnership with WREN and the local
tenants and residents association, have been able to bring this fantastic new
play area to Ossett. The play equipment looks fantastic and I know it will be a
great space for local residents to enjoy.”
The new play area is at the same location at Broadowler Lane in Ossett, WF5
It was officially opened today (Wednesday 4 April) by Cllr Maureen Cummings who
was joined by local councillors and the Broadowler Tenants and Residents
