New play area unveiled in Lichfield

Lichfield District Council has launched its brand new play area in Stowe Fields.

Councillor Richard Cox, cabinet member for leisure, parks and waste, said: “I am thrilled the play area is ready for children to enjoy over the summer holidays. It’s a brilliant new facility and I am sure even more families will visit Stowe Pool to take advantage of the playground.

“We are looking to install benches in the area as we know once children get to the play area they will want to stay for some time.

“This is just one of a number of improvements we’ve made to the district’s parks over the summer.

"We have also launched three outdoor gyms recently, and I hope they are encouraging more people to take part in healthy exercise in our parks.”

Stowe Field’s old junior play equipment, next to the outdoor gym, will be removed after the summer and the area re-landscaped.

The council is planning to formally open Stowe Fields play area later in the year.
