Christmas arrived early for Kimberley this year as improvements to Flixton Road play area have been completed just in time for the holidays.

The play park refurbishment includes new climbing units, balancing bridges, swings and slides for children aged 12 years and under.

A mixture of rubber and bark surfaces have also been installed as well as dog proof fencing to keep the area safe, and new paths, seats and bins provided to keep the area tidy.

The kick-about goals have also been renovated for anyone inspired by this years FA cup and fancy a penalty shoot out.

Broxtowe Borough Council agreed to provide £46,000 towards the scheme and is the first in the borough to be made using Robinia wood, which is sustainably grown in Europe and has a very long resistance to decay.

Councillor Greg Marshall, council portfolio holder for environment, said: “The Council is very proud of its parks and play areas and the opportunities they provide to bring the local community together.

“The improvements at Flixton Road play area will help ensure that local families can enjoy high quality, sustainable facilities for years to come.”
