Suffolk Coastal Norse begins £265,000 revamp of a trio of play areas in Felixstowe

May 2019

Suffolk Coastal Norse has begun work on an exciting £265,000 project to upgrade three popular play areas in Felixstowe by the end of June.


The company is working with East Suffolk Council and Felixstowe Town Council to address the resort's play needs with the three play parks identified as a high priority for investment.


Gosford Way and Allenby Park will be fully refurbished with a range of items suitable for toddlers, juniors and teenagers. Cavendish Park will gain a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) aimed at teenagers.


Gosford Way will have all play equipment replaced with 14 new pieces. In Allenby Park, the surface area of the 5-a-side will be replaced and widened, the play area will get five new pieces of equipment as well as a multi-unit offering eight different activities.


The MUGA being installed in Cavendish Park offers a range of leisure activities such as five-a-side football and basketball.


Hugo Forster, Operations Director for Suffolk Coastal Norse said: “We are delighted to be part of this project which will make Felixstowe’s play areas more attractive places in which to play, benefitting local children in the process. This will be a further enhancement of facilities in Felixstowe which can only be a positive thing for the resort.”   


Kerry Blair, head of operations at East Suffolk Council, said: "We are really pleased that work has started to improve these play areas in Felixstowe. Not only will these improvements make the play areas more attractive to visitors, they will also become a valuable and exciting asset for the local community just in time for summer."


Funding for the project has included £80,000 from Suffolk Coastal, £27,000 from Felixstowe Town Council, £2,000 from Felixstowe Youth Forum, £137,000 from CIL and other developer funds allocated for play/sport, plus money from councillors' enabling and locality budgets.
