Residents invited to vote on design for new Westfield Road Recreation Ground play area

  • Three exciting designs for residents to choose from.
  • Investment of £200,000 in the new Westfield Road Recreation Ground play area part of £1m Council investment in play facilities for children.

Westfield Road Recreation Ground, usually referred to locally as ‘Westfield Rec’ or ‘Westfield Park’, is a much-loved neighbourhood park in Caversham with a small but popular play area. Reading Borough Council will be investing £200,000 in extending and resurfacing the area and providing new play equipment. Local residents are invited to have their say on a shortlist of three possible designs which offer an exciting mix of equipment that ensures the play area is accessible to children and carers using mobility aids such as wheelchairs and walking frames and equipment.  All three designs offer a fun environment for children aged 3-12.

The Westfield Road Recreation Ground play area consultation runs from 10 January to 14 February 2024.

The winning design will be announced in March 2024 and work will start in April 2024.
