The city council would like to hear from parents, grandparents and carers who use St Georges play area, which sits across from Norwich Theatre Playhouse.

The council is investing in a complete upgrade of the play area and is running a public consultation to find out what people would most like to see there.

The consultation, which is hosted on the council’s new Get Talking Norwich website, asks people to choose between two styles of play area – an urban-themed one with a giant climbing dome or a more traditional play area with lower equipment and slides, aimed at younger children.

There is also the opportunity for those taking part in the consultation to say what else they would like to see included in the play area.

Cllr Adam Giles, portfolio holder for parks and open spaces at Norwich City Council, said: “The city council has committed to invest more than £80,000 on a new play area at St Georges – a dedicated space where children can benefit from being outdoors, developing their physical, emotional, and social skills.

“If your children use the play area – or would like to in the future, we’d love you, with input from your little ones, to go online, have a look at the proposals and tell us what you would most like to see there.”

One of the parks and open spaces team will be on site at St Georges play area this Thursday and Friday (9 and 10 March) between noon and 1pm for anyone who would like to share their thoughts in person about the redesign of the space.

The consultation runs until 5pm on Friday, 17 March. To take part, visit
