The huge £1.2 million investment into refurbishing play areas in Christchurch has now been completed.
The River Way play area was the last in a series of 15 to be refurbished, since Dorset Council announced the improvement plans in January 2019.
The first phase began in February last year.
This comes after the Council launched its ‘Christchurch Play Project.’
This is part of an initiative to improve its facilities for children in Christchurch and increase usage of spaces across the borough.
Councillors engaged with local school children to find out what they wanted from the improvements.
Over six schools and 100 students took part.
When the project was proposed, it aimed to identify play areas which were poorly used, so that they can be repurposed for the public.
These areas include; Priory View, Campbell Road and Endfield Road.
Priory Road in Burton was the first to be closed in February last year.
As of last week, the last play area ‘River Way’ was finished and opened for public use -completing the project.
