Good progress being made on the all-new Victoria Park Play Area in Bideford!

Victoria Park 24

The remarkable transformation of Victoria Park Play Area in Bideford is well underway. With the removal of old structures and equipment by local contractors, TK Play, the project has now entered its next phase. Soon, the site will be home to brand new, modern equipment, providing an exciting and safe space for children to play and explore.

The park's centrepiece, a towering structure, will provide access to a host of exciting features, including two slides, a fireman's pole, climbing walls, ladders, and other tactile equipment.

The development is being funded through Torridge District Councils capital funding programme, a generous £119k grant from Bideford Bridge Trust, a Bideford Town Council contribution of £10k, a £150k grant from the Governments Rural Prosperity Fund and private donations.

The works will continue over the coming weeks, with the park's planned opening just in time for the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Torridge District Councillor Lyndon Piper, Lead Member for Leisure said:

"The progress of the works is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all those involved in the project. The cooperation between council officers and resident volunteer organisations has been instrumental in bringing the new park plans to life, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the project.
