A play area in Diss Park is to get a major revamp costing around £100,000 after councillors approved a new design that had been chosen by the public.
Two separate schemes to update some of the equipment in the town centre park, next to Diss Mere, had been put to a public poll.
A design by Nottingham-based company Proludic emerged top with 124 votes, while a second design from Fenland Leisure, from Wisbech, received 69 votes.
The new facilities, aimed at older children, will replace the existing equipment which is more than 10 years old and has been discontinued by manufacturers.
It is hoped work on the new equipment will be begin in the autumn.
