A budget of £100,000 has been allocated by the Vale of Glamorgan Council to update the Cliff Top play area on Peanrth’s Cliff Walk.
The council has announced that it plans to carry out a complete refurbishment in order to – as it puts it – “turn the play area into a cutting-edge facility”.
The refurbished facility – the Vale promises – will contain some “bold, attention-grabbing features”. However the council doesn’t spell out exactly what these new features will be.
Scarred by negative public reaction to its attempt in 2014 to install an unwanted skateboard rink in the Paget Road children’s play area, the council is consulting the public via an online survey on its website about what’s wanted at the Cliff Top and is to hold a “drop-in session” to garner the views of local residents.
The Cwrt-y-Vil play area is also to be refurbished as part of a general upgrading of playgrounds in Penarth .
