New Playpark at Cranleigh Gardens is Open

The new toddler play area in Eastover Park in Bridgwater has now been completed and is open for youngsters to enjoy for the summer holidays. There was an official ‘cut-the-ribbon’’ event on Wednesday, 25th August by chair of Sedgemoor Cllr Alan Bradford alongside Eastover ward councillors Glen Burrows and Tony Heywood. Cllr Burrows said “With the completion of the new playground, Eastover Park has a wonderful array of play spaces for children of all ages. The quad swing is the first of its kind in any Sedgemoor park. With four swings, trampoline, seesaw, springer and a multi-play unit, we’ve got a park to be proud of! Thanks to Sedgemoor District Council who provided funding, and to the people who designed and built the playground. And thanks to the crowd of youngsters who celebrated the opening dancing to “Tiger Feet”! Let’s continue to show our thanks by by respecting the play areas and equipment and keeping the park litter-free. When life eventually gets back to normal, let’s use the park for a variety of community events and entertainment, to bring people together again. “
