The new park has been built on the Green in the middle of the Meadow Way to replace an existing play park, with new pathways created to make it more accessible for families.

The work has been part of a series of improvements to the Meadow Way estate carried out Central Beds Council’s housing service. These include extensive tree works, installing planters outside the community centre, and working with Community Payback to clear pathways and alleyways. The council’s Tenancy Involvement and Engagement team have also held drop-in sessions to help tenants with housing matters.

Cllr Steven Watkins, executive member for business, housing and public assets, said: “The opening of the new play park coincided with the Easter holidays, allowing families to really explore and make the most of it. Our housing officers have received great feedback from families on the Meadow Way estate, who have told us their children are really enjoying the new equipment, something I hope continues for years to come.

"This new play park is a fantastic addition to Meadow Way. Ensuring tenant satisfaction is our top priority, and projects like this truly enhance the well-being and happiness of our community members."
