Crawley Borough Council has now commenced works at the Millpond adventure playground to rejuvenate and improve the play area in preparation for this being redeveloped and reopened as an unsupervised play area. 

These works are aligned to the inspection report undertaken which identified that many of the pieces of equipment, including the castle structure, had either reached the end of life and/or were not appropriate for an unsupervised play area and needed to be removed or replaced. The council will be sharing proposed plans for the new play area with the local community in due course for comments.

Crawley Borough Council is also continuing to work with a local community group, Inspirecastle, to support them in developing activities on the site over holiday periods once the site reopens.

We’re pleased to have commenced the redevelopment of Millpond playground and are looking forward to speaking to local residents in due course to get their thoughts on plans for the new play area.
