Two new play areas are due to be opened in Haverhill by the Easter holidays.
Work on a replacement play area in Quendon Place and the Haverhill Recreation Ground is due to start tomorrow (Thursday 8th).
Around £150,000 is being invested in the two schemes to replace outdated play equipment.
The existing Haverhill Recreation play area will remain open while landscaping and the installation of a new play area takes place nearby. The new play area should open by the end of March.
Meanwhile the Quendon Place play area should be finished by early next month.
Cllr Sarah Stamp, St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Heritage, said: “Both of these play areas are popular and have served the local community well over the years. The equipment however is now old and in need of replacement. I am delighted that work has started on both of these play areas this week.
“To minimise any disruption, we will be keeping the existing Haverhill Rec play facility open until the new one is completed. The really great news is that by the time of the school Easter holidays, both of these new play areas should be open and in use.”
