Improvements to Azalea Play Park 2020

The Parish Council are considering some improvements to the Azalea Play Park and these could include:

  • An extension to the existing scooter track, plus re-marking of the track and adding road signs and a play garage to create interactive play
  • Replacing the double swing set to include an accessible swing seat for disabled children
  • Play markings on the footpaths to encourage children’s activity
  • Replacing the existing picnic benches with accessible picnic benches
  • Installing a zip wire adjacent to but outside the play area boundary
  • Installing a basketball hoop and appropriate surface, also adjacent to but outside the play area
  • Creating a small number of car park spaces within the park to alleviate parking within Azalea Gardens and local roads and to improve accessibility to the play area for disabled users
  • Further planting within the park to enhance the environment

Art Trail

An Art Trail has recently been installed at Crookham park in Church Crookham.  The trail has received a warm welcome from the residents of Church Crookham.  1st Crookham Guides came up with the name “Woodland Friends”.  If you havene’t seen the trail already, please do pay it a visit. 

New Wheel Park

Planning permission was granted to the Parish Council for construction of the new Wheel Park at Crookham Park on 12th November 2015. The Parish Council appointed Maverick to design and build the Wheel Park and it was opened in the Summer 2016.  The Wheel Park has proved very popular.  Two acoustic surveys have been carried out to assess the noise impact on local housing.  The first was carried out before the build and recommended that earth bunding was extended to 1.5m high above ground levels and this was implemented during the build.  The second acoustic survey was conducted after the wheel park opened and covered the last few days and weekend of the summer holidays 2016, it recommended that a 2.8m high barrier is installed. The Parish Council have approved the installation of the fence subject to planning consent and installation of a Laurel hedge to provide screening and additional noise reduction.

Out-door Gym equipment

The parish council went out to tender to install some out-door gym equipment at the Peter Driver playing fields.  The parish council requested designs that would be inclusive for use by the whole community. They wanted the gym to be suitable for functional body weight training and to be located In an area approximately 100m2 in front of the five a side pitch at the Peter Driver Sports ground.  The parish council short listed three schemes that would fit within the allocated budget and meet the specification.  The three schemes were from Wickstead, TGO and Komplan.  TGO was found to be the preferred design and has now been installed at the Peter Driver playing fields.

Upcoming Projects

Once these large projects have been completed there are a number of projects that the Parish Council would like to investigate and start in the coming few years such as, installation of a basketball net at Peter Driver playing fields, a new pathway at Azalea Park and additional play equipment for Azalea Park.
