Nottingham City Council's Parks and Open Spaces have a rolling plan of new developments and improvements across the city.
Shipstone Street Makeover
A funding bid has been submitted to WREN for funding to help improve the playground on site. The proposal for the park, just off Radford Road, will include replacing most of the play equipment on site, repairing fencing and putting in some outdoor gym equipment for parents and older children to use. Should this bid be successful it is anticipated that the scheme, coming in at around £65,000 (£50,000 from WREN and the rest coming from Ward Councillors) will be started in the New Year. Watch this space for further information.

This small playground located off the Wells Road is due to soon have facelift with £13,000 worth of investment helping to transform the old play area into something that can be used more by the local community.
