Improving play at Portchester Park

Fareham Borough Council needs your help to improve Portchester Park Play Area, as part of their five-year Play Area Improvement Programme.

To help decide how the play area could be improved residents are being asked to pick their favourite style Junior and Toddler multi-climbing units.

For the juniors, you can choose between a brightly coloured metal climbing unit or a wooden and metal coloured climbing unit.

For the toddlers, the choices are either a pirate themed or nursery rhyme themed climbing unit.

All other existing equipment will be painted and other smaller improvements will be made to enhance what is a very popular play area in Portchester.

Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Sue Bell, said: "Portchester Park is the latest play area which we've identified for improvements, as part of our on-going investment to improving play facilities within the Borough. I would like to encourage residents to get involved and have their say so that we can make them as enjoyable as possible for years to come.

Visit to get involved or visit the Council's Facebook and Twitter pages. The consultation ends on Tuesday 5 June. Works to the play area are expected to begin in 2019.
