Playground4dorney Refurbishment


Our playground in Dorney provides a wonderful free access sport and leisure facility for people in the local area. We want to replace and improve the flooring area around our most popular play equipment, the Jungle Climber, to make sure it meets the highest standards and remains a safe space for all the children in the local area.

Our goals:

  • Replace and refurbish the safety area around our popular and fun playground Jungle Climber
  • Help make our playground more environmentally-friendly
  • Keep our local playground to the highest standards
£10k project Currently ranked in

How we will achieve our goals

This award will enable our volunteer management team to fully refurbish the playground to the condition and standard achieved when it was originally built. Our project is very important to ensure the long term viability of our equipment for the enjoyment of all users of the facility.

Where the money will go

The playground benefits the youth and families of the community, fostering ownership of a community generated, run and maintained facility. The youth of the community have actively been involved in all stages of the project and will continue to be involved. The finished enhancements will ensure the playground can be enjoyed for years to come.

    This is my children’s local playground & used not only by our neighbours, but our school too, bringing families and the community together. It is the hub of our community run by outstanding dedicated volunteers.

    I visit this playground regularly with my grandchildren – it is an outstanding outdoors gathering place where children can have healthy exercise, lots of fun and all age groups mix happily. The volunteers who established and run this playground are to be commended – it has a massive positive effect for the community, visitors and individual children’s lives. This project deserves support for its continual improvement for generations to come.

    This is a great playground that can be enjoyed by children all ages from babies to teenagers and even parents for the outdoor game “bop it” 🙂
