Have your say on the new Portman Road Children’s Playground

We are inviting local residents in West Reading to vote on their preferred designs for the refurbishment of the play area at Portman Road.

Portman Road’s existing playground is set to benefit from an £94k investment to refurbish the playground with a new, exciting mix of equipment, which is accessible and suitable for toddlers through to juniors. This will include a multi-play unit, inclusive roundabout and basket swing amongst other pieces of play equipment.

We invited several playground manufacturers to submit designs for the new playground, which have been shortlisted and we want to know what you think. The four successful shortlisted designs can be viewed online and you can vote for your favourite from 8th - 30th July 2021.

Results from the consultation will form part of the final selection of the winning design, which will also include consultation with the Accessible Play Task and Finish Group.

The winning design scheme will be announced in August 2021. Work is expected to start on-site in September 2021, with an aim to be completed by November.
