Excitement builds as new �70,000 facility nears completion

A NEW play park is expected to open in South Molton this weekend.

Details for the opening of the �70,000 state-of-the-art play park in Central Park will be finalised at a South Molton Town Council meeting tonight (Tuesday) but the Gazette understands the facility could be ready for use on Saturday.

The park features a raft of play equipment for toddlers, younger children and teenagers, with a below ground trampoline, a rope end swinger and a six-foot bird’s nest tree, as well as landscaping and upgrades to existing paths and gateways.

It is being paid for by South Molton Town Council with a �20,000 contribution of developers’ open spaces money from North Devon Council.
