Playpark at Bankmill Road/Milnbank Road

I recently was asked by residents if the playpark at Bankmill Road/Milnbank Road could be improved – see below :
The playpark has not had any capital funding spent on it in a very long time and I asked the council if it can be considered for future improvements.
 
The Head of Environment in the City Council’s Neighbourhood Services who initially advised me :
 
“I will get one of our staff to have a look at this.    In terms of priorities for 2016/2017 we are looking at Dawson and Victoria Park with other sites having minor improvement with Health and Safety being an important factor. The budget is going to be the limiting factor.”
 
I have already updated residents about the welcome improvements planned to Victoria Park’s playpark planned for this year but I am hoping that ewe can see improvements for the playpark at Bankmill Road/Milnbank Road in the future as well.


The Assistant Operations Manager for Neighbourhood Services in the west of the city further updated me regarding this playpark that :


” .. there were improvements in 2015 to the park, mainly the south fence and there was a new Timber Climb / slide installed. The remainder of the units are probably 10 years old. 


(It is a) bit run down due to the amount of hard surfacing – mainly slabs, tar paths, etc.   I am currently looking to see if this can be softened up by grassing some of this.  Also, the benches and bins could do with re-positioning which I will have carried out.”
