Grove Lane Park play area improvements complete

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

Work has been completed on a £29.5k makeover of the play area at Grove Lane Park in Hemsworth.

Improvements have been paid for through Wakefield Council’s Town Centre Regeneration Fund.

The project has been supported by ward councillors who have worked closely with residents to identify projects that will benefit the local community.

“The new and improved facilities at the park look great and are a wonderful addition to the local community.

“We consulted with local people, and they told us that an improved playground with more inclusive equipment was what they wanted. We are really pleased with the work and the changes that have been made.

“This is a fantastic example of how the community, local councillors and the Council can work together to improve life for local people. Everyone will be working together to make sure the play area is maintained to a high standard.”
