Suffolk Road Recreation Ground Consultation

Closed 10 Oct 2017

Opened 19 Sep 2017


The Council and Friends of Suffolk Road Recreation Ground are proposing to create a new dog free area along the right hand side of the park as you enter from Suffolk Road. In this area the Council plans to create a new play area that includes a mixture of natural and traditional play and includes a small sandpit. 

In the future a sensory garden is proposed within the dog free area with close proximity to Walnut Close, including a new access point from the estate allowing ease of access for those less mobile.

Elsewhere in the Recreation Ground, the Council is also proposing to plant new shrubs, trees and a wildflower meadow with dog walking circuit, as well as installing additional seating. For more details on the proposed plan, please see the related documents section at the bottom of the page.

The aim of this consultation is to inform users about the proposals and to establish whether the proposed changes are supported. Following the consultation, all feedback will be taken into account and the Council will liaise with the friends group regarding the next steps going forward.
