Parks and play improvements

The parks team are aiming to improve play areas in Newport. The project has secured funding from the 2022 budget consultations to upgrade play areas to provide children with safe and fun spaces to play.

The project is being undertaken with the input of the community, ensuring that the needs and preferences of local families are considered in the design process through multiple consultations.
