Work on new Drovers Way Play Area to begin


The ‘water-themed' refurbishment of a play area at Drovers Way in Radyr is due to start on 2ndOctober, following completion of work to resolve drainage issues at the site.

Suitable for toddlers, juniors, and accessible play, the play area will be in the shape of ‘water ripples and puddles' and include a new layout with rubber safety surfacing, paving, and new seating.

New play equipment will also be installed, including swings, a bouncing mat, an accessible carousel, spinners, a multi-unit with slide, spring toys, and imaginative play elements.

Cabinet Member for Culture, Parks and Events, Cllr Jennifer Burke, said: "Children need to play, and having access to a good quality play area, close to home, can make a really big difference for families. That's why we're continuing to invest in local play areas across the city, creating safe, accessible and fun-filled spaces for children and to enjoy."

Work to refurbish the Drovers Way play area is expected to be completed by early 2024.
