Just heard that our Ocean See-Saw is being installed today!

The play area will be closed part of the time today while they are working.  It will be open in the evening with the new springer fenced off. The post installation safety inspection will take place tomorrow and assuming it's OK the item will be available for use for the weekend.

Ocean See-Saw to be installed in Marple Memorial Park

Friends of the Park: working hard to make our park a better place!

Following the great success of the 2018 Julian Wadden Treasure Hunt, which raised £2,154 towards new equipment in the Infants Play Area, and the award of a £1,000 grant from the Autotrader Community Fund, Friends of the Park are pleased to announce that a new Ocean See-Saw has been ordered and is due to be installed in late September / early October 2018.

The total cost of the See-Saw is £5,570 and this funding is made up as follows:

    £2,154 Julian Wadden Treasure Hunt 2018.
    £1,702 Commuted Sums for Children's Play.
    £1,000 Autotrader Community Fund grant.
    £314 Stockport Council Greenspace.
    £300 Friends of Marple Memorial Park.
    £100 The Marple Website.



Equipment Location

It was initially proposed that the new equipment would replace the old springers but it turned out that the Ocean See-Saw will be a perfect fit in the space next to the new swings installed in 2017, so that's where it will go and the springers will be kept for a future project that will replace them.
