Planned improvements to Burngreave Recreation Ground near Byron Wood School will start in August, taking 16 weeks.
The plans have been under development since 2006 in consultation with the local community. Now with funding from Viridor Landfill Tax Credit, Playbuilder & Healthy Living Challenge Fund, Big Lottery Fund, and section 106 money, part of the plans can be made into reality.
The improvements will include:
Stone terracing on the slope between Burngreave Street and Burngreave Bank
New steps from Burngreave Street along the edge of the Adventure Playground
Replacement of steps to the top of the Rec playing field
Steps removed at the top of Burngreave Bank replaced with a ramp
New seating and benches
The old tarmac pitch will be replaced with:
New kick pitch
Playmeadow with outdoor play equipment
The work is due to be completed in December. During the improvements, access to the site will be affected and some routes through the site will be closed.
