Diss play area set to open after £110,000 revamp

A new-look play area in Diss Park will be officially opened on December 7 at 10.30am after a £110,000 revamp.

It now features slides, swings, climbing frames and a climbing wall.

Some of the old equipment could not be replaced due to production ceasing.

This project has been made possible through developer funds from the Longmeadow estate, which had to be spent on the ‘improvement of physical recreational facilities or equipment for older children within the parishes of Roydon and Diss’.

The play area will be opened by mayor Sonia Browne.

Goody bags will be given to the first 50 children to enter the play area after the ribbon is cut.

A spokeswoman for the council said: "We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Proludic and Abacus for designing and installing the equipment as well as Persimmon Homes for their developer contributions.

"Installation of the new accessible trampoline and replacement roundabout - additional items to the original scheme - is scheduled for completion to tie in with the school Christmas holidays so children will have something else to look forward to."
