Rushcliffe Country Park play area gets major refurbishment and new equipment

Plans to refurbish Rushcliffe Country Park’s play area have been revealed as part of £175,000 of investment in local facilities from Rushcliffe Borough Council (RBC). 


The Ruddington park will see the changes after the Easter holidays in April, with works including replacing the existing central space net with a new Kanope Tower multi-play unit featuring 14 different play elements and a new wooden trail. 


This will offer panoramic views of the park, and increase play opportunities with a new pendulum pod swing and a fully inclusive wheelchair see-saw.

Existing equipment will be refurbished and improved with the full scheme adding 28 new play elements and 47 additional user activities.


Works will be completed by Bradmore-based playground equipment supplier Proludic Ltd who have designed the updated features. 


It follows £210,000 of investment in the nearby skatepark and BMX track at the site in recent years.


RBC’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Leisure & Wellbeing, ICT & Member Development Cllr Jonathan Wheeler said: “Community facilities such as these are so important for local families and young people so we are delighted to be able to invest and update them, not least at one of our most popular parks 


“The re-development at the Country Park sees more inclusive equipment introduced, suitable for a wider age range as well as natural play elements such as a wooden nature trail and we aim to have both schemes completed by the end of June in advance of the summer holidays.


“The changes reflect some of the feedback we received in a consultation in 2022 and we know it’s vital to keep listening to parkgoers’ views so we provide facilities that keep them coming back to this brilliant park.”
