Thank you to all those who gave us their views.

You can read about the feedback we received and the next steps in the report below.



As part of the Council’s continued commitment to improve our parks and open spaces, the Council and Friends of Carlisle Park are proposing to make changes to the Carlisle Park playgrounds and create a new outdoor fitness space for park users.

The proposal involves moving the existing toddler play equipment into the main play area, installing it close to existing equipment aimed at children of a similar age.  The proposed locations are shown on this map and the toddler equipment to be relocated to the larger play area includes:

4 cradle swings

Small slide

Spinning bowl

2 springer units

Play panel

2 green metal benches

As part of the improvements, we will look to replace one of the cradle swings with a cradle swing suitable for children with disabilities.

The former toddler play area will then be developed as an outdoor fitness space, with new equipment installed. The gym equipment will be suitable for those that suffer from mobility issues as well as able-bodied users. Examples of possible gym equipment are shown here.
