Radyr and Morganstown Community Council has been working hard to deliver improvements to the children’s playground at Drovers Way. A partnership has been established, between the Community Council, Cardiff Council, the Clos Parc Radur Management Committee and Redrow Homes.
To date, one swing has been replaced – and over £25k earmarked for further improvements. In addition, Jamie Grundy, a local resident, is developing a crowdfunding campaign to fund the one or two, remaining, unfunded items of equipment. He has already established a twitter feed in relation to the crowd funding. You can follow this at: www.twitter.com/ParkRadyr .
All of this will ensure that, for the first time, the playground circle will be full of equipment, rather than half empty.
Redrow Homes is also considering what work needs to be done to prevent mud and water flowing onto the site – as happens now.
Local residents will have an opportunity to view Cardiff Council’s plans for the playground, as part of Redrow’s Plasdwr drop-in session on Thursday, 7 February at the New Church Rooms (between 4pm and 7pm). Comments and suggestions will be welcomed.
Councillor Huw Onllwyn Jones said ‘We are delighted with progress to date – and hope that plenty of parents and children come to the drop in event on 7 February to give us their views on the proposed new park”.
