Telford 50 is Coming Soon...

New lease of life to iconic children’s play equipment

As part of the £2m Telford 50 Legacy Fund, the borough’s most iconic piece of play equipment is set to be refurbished.

Thousands of children each year play on the so-called spider’s web climbing frame which at the heart of one of the borough’s top attractions Telford Town Park.

It was installed nearly 20 years ago, however the play equipment will soon come to the end of its useful life.

Now thanks to the Council’s Telford 50 Legacy Fund, a new spider’s web is to be installed next month to keep this kids’ favourite in the town park for years to come.

The new web will also include some new swing seats as part of the frame.

The new frame is due to be installed in time for the school summer holidays.

The £60,000 investment will provide Telford and the Town Park with a lasting legacy for generations.

The Town Park attracts more than 700,000 visitors each year and the new spiders web will also provide children with years of fun long after the Telford 50 celebrations end.
