Old play area needs replacing. I seen   many of the local kids try to make the most of this play park just next to the miners football pitch over the years. While other surrounding areas have had skateparks, AstroTurf pitches, basketball courts installed, and would like to get peoples help to see what can be done to force a rethink of the play area for the residents surrounding this pitch. As most residents will be aware the flats with kids don't have anything to do other than try to make the most out of this play area. That is a constant mess with broken glass.Now a tyre swing that is not even able to be put to use.

North Motherwell is one of the most deprived areas in north Lanarkshire .

Kids have little access to adequate outdoor play area without having to cross many busy roads .To get to and from nearest adequate play areas .

Being out doors is essential for kids physical and mental well being and benefits of better fitness levels team working sensory development and resilience building to further children development .

The current nearest play area is very poorly equipped and outdated and certainly not as described on the NLC website .Some of the equipment dates back to at least the 1990s and this is unacceptable .

 

Children in this area deserve better than this .
