Town Head Playground in in need of a much needed revamp to encourage safe play and learning for children and young people of all ages in a safe and attractive environment.

The playground is a much used and well loved part of the community, located next to Grassington Primary School and the Upper Wharfedale Children's Centre, it is used by the children of Grassington and Threshfield and surrounding villages and also bymany tourists who visit the area.

The need for the project has arisen following a ROSPA inspection carried out during 2012 identifying the following:
Timber not in good condition
Ladders exposed and damaged
this is largely due to the fact that equipment has been in place for 17 years.

Grassington Hub and Community Library and the Playgrounds Association which is made up of local residents and parents are working together to fundraise and apply for grant funding to replace each peice of equipment, Grant funding of £8,000 has been secured and matchfunding is required.

What we'll deliver:

  • Replace the Lorry/Fire Engine Replace Twin Cradle Swings Replace Elephant Slide Fit Picnic Benches in the Play Area

Why it's a great idea:

Through revitalising and revamping local playspace we will be creating a safe play area for children, young people and families of all ages to learn through play whilst having fun in a safe and welcoming environment.

Whilst catering for the residents of Grassington and nearby Villages of Upper Wharfedale we will also be catering to the tourists who visit the area who will also access local business sites outlets therefore making the community sustainable in years to come.

By installing new equipment throughout we will be improving the attractiveness of the sight and increasing usage for children, young people and families of all ages creating picnic areas thus improving the overall environment.

Steps to get it done:

  • Commission KOMPAN prepare resurface and install all new eqiupment
  • Playground Association plant flowers/shrubs in keeping with the play area
  • Purchase Play Equipment from KOMPAN

The area will be completely natural and environmentally friendly - from our gardening practices to the materials used for building - ensuring it’s all in harmony with nature
