About us News Planning permission granted for new play area We are very pleased to announce that planning permission has now been granted for our newly remodelled play area in Ferry Meadows, replacing the existing play area at Lakeside. ‘Fox Play’ forms the next stage in updating and improving the play provision at Ferry Meadows, following similar successful developments of Otter Play in 2014 and Badger Play in 2016, designed to offer natural adventurous play for all ages. Fox Play will provide a play area with ranges of accessible features, zip lines, raised walk ways, climbing opportunities, water features and plenty of new tree planting. It will be the biggest of our play areas aimed at slightly older children, but accessible for all ages. We are now working hard to secure funding for the development of the new play area but we are hoping that construction can start early next year. Keep your eye on our website and social media channels for updates on this exciting development for the Park.
