Improvement works set for North Somerset parks thanks to Government funding

Improvement works are being carried out in several parks across North Somerset this summer thanks to a grant from the government.

It follows the award of a £37,118 grant to the council by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to support “urgent” works in parks.

Councillor Caritas Charles, executive member for parks and green spaces, said the funding is "particularly welcome".because of ongoing budget cuts.

“We are targeting funds where there is an immediate need," he said.

"The grant gives us a much-needed opportunity to replace decommissioned play equipment that has been removed for safety purposes and to repair old or damaged infrastructure.”

The projects are as follows:


  • Cherry Avenue – add one piece of play equipment


  • Millennium Park – replace zip wire in play area
  • Trendlewood Park – add one piece of play equipment


  • Nightingale Rise – replace multi-climb unit
  • Merlin Park – upgrade skate park


  • Grove Park – provide new recycling bins and repair paths
  • Clarence Park – repair boundary walls
  • Oldmixon Rec – provide football facilities for women
  • Ashcombe Park – remove trees that are undermining boundary walls
  • Prince Consort Gardens – repair path by Victorian shelter and upgrade electric supply
