Northfields Park, Strensall

000 Strensall Northfields Galopin Project

Strensall with Towthorpe Parish Council wanted to bring Northfields back to life with a fun new design that would encourage young families to use the area and become the community hub it once was. The area was covered in wood chipping loose fill surface that made it difficult for the parish to maintain and also difficult for disabled visitors to make their way around the play area.

The new design took care of removing all the wood chip and reinstating it back to grass to ensure the space could be easily maintained. The project was delivered with ongoing support form Jupiter Play who were present at many of the parish meetings to ensure the project was progressed in line with the plan.

The only complaint I have had, is from our local grass cutter, who keeps ringing up to tell us that every time he goes to mow the grass, he cannot because there are children all over the site—which to us shows that the whole project has been a massive success.” Susan Nunn, Parish Clerk
