Work to install the new junior and toddler play areas in Diss Park is due to start this month.

The scheme is being partly-funded by £10,000 from recycling company Wren and should take up to five weeks to complete.

During this time a certain amount of disruption is anticipated. However, the junior swings, aerial runway and basketball area will remain available for use.

The town council has spent the last two years seeking funding for the long-awaited scheme.

Town mayor Simon Olander said: “This is a project the council has been keen to bring to fruition, and the installation of this new play equipment is the first phase of the large park regeneration project. We are delighted this is now going ahead and is a welcome addition to the many other facilities that the town council provides for the people of Diss.”

The new play facilities are designed to provide an exciting and innovative play scheme for children to enjoy for years to come.

It was hoped that new paths across the park and through the new play areas would be installed at the same time.

Funding for these will now be achieved through the wider park regeneration project which is continuing to be progressed.

Landscape architects are working on a scheme that will soon be available for public consultation, before funding is sought.
