Brighton and Hove City council is set to begin a £100,000 upgrade of Blakers Park children’s play area on Monday (July 12).

The council says the work is due to be completed in around three weeks, just after schools break up for the summer holidays.

It will include 15 new pieces of play equipment, much of which is wheelchair accessible, with separate areas for older and younger children.

While the play park is closed, the nearest playground is Preston Park.

The refurbishment is part of the council’s plans to upgrade 45 play areas over the next three years, with 25 sites being finished by the end of the financial year next March.
