WORK to transform a Prestatyn play area is set to start next month.

Coronation Gardens play area will benefit from new play equipment including a zip wire and improved pathways and walls and it is expected the project could be completed by Easter.

Cllr Bob Murray, who represents Prestatyn South West, said: “Years in the planning, hours of consultation and finally I am delighted to report that working with my fellow councillors, Nigel Acott, clerk to Prestatyn Town Council and Denbighshire Council officers, work is finally set to start on Coronation Gardens Play area on March 3

“Weather permitted will be completed by Easter.

“The improvements will include a completely refurbished play area with new play equipment including a zip wire and improved pathways and walls.

“This is a joint venture with Prestatyn Town Council and Denbighshire Council and is long overdue.”

Prestatyn Town Council has contributed £50,000, £20,000 of which is from commuted sums for play equipment which includes a play station, a toddlers cycle track with speed humps and a zip wire.

Denbighshire Council has provided £15,000 to improve footpaths and install new bins and the council will also refurbish the existing play equipment and replace the more aged pieces

Temporary signs warning people the play area will be closed for improvements will go up on the 21 February.

Cllr Murray said there was also funding available for a mountain bike pump track and a search was underway to find a suitable location.

A spokesman for Denbighshire Council said: “Thanks to successful partnership working, residents and visitors, young and old alike, will benefit greatly from the new and improved facilities at Coronation Gardens.”
