Kettering’s Meadow Road Park is now open following the first phase of major improvements!
Visit the town centre destination park and you will find new play equipment, footpaths, safety surfacing, lighting, CCTV and natural seating areas.
Kettering Borough Council improved Meadow Road Park using money from agreements negotiated as part of recent local housing developments. Improvements to this important open space will provide a place to play, work out or relax in a town centre destination park enhanced by the offer of nearby shopping and places to eat.
A consultation took place during December and January to hear the views of local people on the proposals, which were used to influence the final design of the park.
The park will continue to evolve over the course of the year so expect to see more additions over the coming months, including:
- New bank slides
- New picnic benches to complement the current natural rock seating
- Sand play
- Fitness zone equipment
- Further landscaping
- Fencing to mark the area were dogs must be kept on a lead
- Planting of silver birch trees
- New gateway entrance at the top of Meadow Road
Further information will be provided when the second phase of works are underway. You can find out more about the project at www.kettering.gov.uk/meadow-road-park
