The installation of interesting well-designed play equipment on the Recreation Ground, offering play value for a range of ages with a mix of standards and accessible pieces. Encouraging families who live in this area and those visiting this part of Selsey to spend more outside time in the vicinity of the High Street. Benefitting to the health, well-being and social interaction of the local community and encouraging a sense of place. Since the erection of a new Medical Centre, the area has been without outside play equipment for families to use this outdoor space all year round. The community were assured at the time of construction that the community amenity of a play area would be placed back in the park in the future. Currently there is no play equipment for public use in this area, or to the west side of Selsey generally. The proposed fully accessible play equipment will fill this lack of provision and open it up to children of all abilities.

What we'll deliver:

  • A substantial area of inclusive, bespoke, play equipment
  • Fully accessible for those of all abilities
  • Age range toddler to teenager

Why it's a great idea:

It will become an indispensable gathering space for families before and after school. It will encourage more adults and children to get outside and be active encouraging well-being. It will support social cohesion as a great gathering spot to meet up with friends or make new acquaintances. This proposed playground with a unique and innovative design will become a destination, attracting families and visitors from all over. The position of this proposed playground will also provide an economic impact with increased foot traffic on the way to and from its location.

Steps to get it done:

  • Implementation of a bespoke unique piece of equipment

Selsey has a population where 17.5% of people are living below the poverty line, it is a rural coastal town and is geographically vulnerable. The position of the proposed play park is close to Selsey Foodbank, giving families who sadly utilise this resource a free of charge outlet for family fun. The siting of a play area in this vicinity is adjacent to parking facilities and has accessible pathways direct to the area of play equipment.
