Residents Invited to Vote on Favourite Design For New Waterloo Meadows Play Area

  • Four exciting designs for residents to choose from

Reading Council is inviting local residents to help choose the design for a new play area at Waterloo Meadows, positioned alongside the River Kennet by Elgar Road and Rose Kiln Lane, as part of the Council’s ongoing major investment in playgrounds across Reading’s parks.

Scenic Waterloo Meadows boasts a variety of facilities and landscapes including beautiful willows dotted along the river banks. Local residents are now being invited to have their say on a shortlist of four new play areas. Designs include a mix of exciting equipment accessible to all ages and mobility levels. The refurbished play area will also have a new surface to enable access for children and carers using mobility aids such as wheelchairs and walking frames.

The Waterloo Meadows Play consultation runs from today 5 September to 16 October 2023 and residents are being encouraged to vote on their favourite design.

Once the consultation is completed the results will form a significant part of the final selection of the winning design, which will also include consultation with the Reading Access and Disabilities Working Group and assessments on value for money and technical competency.

The winning design will be announced in November 2023 and work will start in Spring 2024.
