What do you want in your new playground at Beach House Grounds?

Worthing Council has won £135K from Europe some of which has been earmarked to spend on a new playground facility at Beach House Grounds.  But before any play equipment can be ordered we need to know what would appeal to the families using it.

Families are asked to come along to the sandcourts on Beach House Grounds from 10am through to 3pm on Saturday 28 April to have their say on which designs and options on display from various specialist playground providers they prefer. If raining the consultation will be held in Coast Café nearby.

The playground, planned to be installed over the summer period will complement the other initiatives around Splash Point including the new pool which in turn will help support the surrounding businesses.

Regeneration officer Lynda Spain who is in charge of the project says:

“We are inviting all children and parents to come along and see the exciting designs for the new playground from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 28tht.  The new playground is the next step in creating a fantastic destination for residents and visitors at this end of the promenade and will complement our recent improvements at Splash Point.  Once the new pool complex is completed next spring this area will be a magnet for visitors and residents to come and enjoy”.

The playground will be funded 50/50 from the EU’s 2 Seas Programme through the Seaconomics Project and Worthing Borough Council.

Seaconomics is a partnership with 11 other coastal towns across northern Europe was recently successful in its bid for funding to support tourism related businesses along their waterfronts. As well as making improvement with the grant money the project will target existing tourism businesses and support new business start–ups in the area.   Support will consist of business advice, training and being part of a joined up marketing campaign to promote all 11 partner areas.
