Press Release

Brand new play area coming soon to Abbey Meadows

Fareham Borough Council has announced that a brand-new children’s play area is to be installed in Titchfield.

Located off Cartwright Drive, Titchfield, construction on the new Abbey Meadows play area will commence next month and will be completed in time for the school summer holidays in July.

Abbey Meadows was named in 2018 following a consultation with residents but work on preparing the site was delayed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The natural style play area was hand-picked by children and families that took part in the consultation, as well children from Titchfield Primary School.

This new play area has been designed and will be installed by Eibe Play, who also designed and installed the Council’s two other destination play areas at Holly Hill and Daedalus Common. The design complements the surroundings, while taking inspiration from the nearby Titchfield Abbey.

Abbey Meadows play area will feature a range of equipment for children of all ages and abilities, including a multi-climbing unit themed around the Abbey which will be suitable for children with reduced mobility, meaning all children will be able play and have fun together.

The play area will also include exciting equipment such as:

Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Sue Bell, said: “This play area will be a huge benefit for the local community and visitors to Titchfield. It is incredibly important that children of all abilities can play together, so the large multi-climbing unit allows children with reduced mobility to come and play with their friends.

“I would like to thank the residents of Titchfield and the Titchfield Village Trust who were involved in the consultation process and particularly the children from Titchfield Primary School who shared their ideas and helped us. I would also like to thank Eibe Play for coming up with this fantastic design.

“There is much work now to be done but the play equipment will be ready to go just in time for the summer school holidays.”
