Rectory play area set to get upgrade

Swale Borough Council is pleased to announce the refurbishment of the Rectory Play Area in Sittingbourne. The facility has provided residents with a fun leisure area over the years, but is now due for an upgrade.

The play area improvements include two new sets of swings, a new toddler play unit with slides, a roundabout and seesaw. Teenagers can enjoy a more challenging separate area. The whole of the top section will be surfaced and link up with the existing trim trail at the bottom of the play area. A new green fence will surround the entire play area perimeter.

The new play equipment has been selected the be as inclusive as possible, so parents and children can enjoy time together. Whilst the site (and budget) does not lend itself to wheelchair accessible items, play units have been designed to make transfer from a wheelchair as easy as possible.

Cllr David Simmons, cabinet member for environment and rural affairs at the council, says: “It’s important that children and teenagers have the chance to enjoy recreational time outside and away from their screens. The upgraded facilities at the Rectory Play Area in Sittingbourne will provide an inclusive environment and serve young families in Sittingbourne for years to come.”

The refurbishment is due for completion for Easter 2019.
