Dartmouth Park Plan unveiled

Plans for a new play area and multi-gym area for young people was unveiled to a meeting of the ‘Friends of Dartmouth Park’ group last week.  The plans, funded by housing developer contributions, will see a children’s play area introduced, along with a ‘teen zone’ for young people on the site of a disused tennis court.

Councillor Judith Elliott said “This regeneration plan has been a long time in coming, but we are delighted it is now to be implemented.  We have campaigned for many years, along with the ‘Friends of Dartmouth Park’ group, for these improvements to be introduced and the plan will be implemented over the autumn and winter months.”

Over £200,000 has been found to support the regeneration project, which will include improvements to the footpaths.

Councillor Wyn Kidger, who attended the meeting said “Dartmouth Park is one of the jewels in Morley’s parks crown and this improvement plan will be welcomed by young and old alike.  The Friends group deserve a lot of credit for battling alongside us to bring these improvements and I am pleased we are finally going to see the work undertaken.”
