Garth Park natural playground

Garth Park natural playground

Bicester Town Council working in partnership with Cherwell District Council and sustainability charity Bioregional has delivered a £140,000 natural playground at Garth Park.

Previous facilities in Garth Park had been in place for about 30 years and included metal swings, a slide and climbing frame for children.This space now provides a natural playground with play facilities for children and exercise stations for adults.

All of the facilities are made of natural, renewable and/ or recyclable materials and include play stations such as a climbing frame, clamber nets and slides as well as bridges, stepping stones and pebble streams to encourage imaginative play.

The project received a £70,000 boost from the grant-giving body WREN which helped fund the provision of new play stations which are designed and constructed from natural materials.
