Friends of Elmbridge are raising money to build a playground in Armscroft park.

Gloucester Delivery stage

pledged of £113,227

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Elmbridge is an area of Gloucester that is full of families but there is not a suitable playground in the area. In a recent review by the council they said there is a serious shortfall in formal play areas yet a higher than normal number of children under the age of 17. There is social inequality in the area with pockets of deprivation and we want this community playground to bring all members of the community together. The city council have given us their permission to build a playground and have donated some money to buy a trim trail and to put up a fence. We hope to raise the rest from donations and grants.

What we'll deliver:

  • Create a community edible garden
  • Install new playground equipment
  • Install picnic tables and bins
  • Landscape the park with a new path and flowers
  • To hold community events

Why it's a great idea:

Elmbridge needs a park and Armscroft is the perfect place.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchase and install playground equipment
  • Have a grand opening event

Improve community cohesion.
