The existing play area will undergo a complete transformation, creating fun-filled activity zones.

Toddlers will enjoy hours of imaginative play in the Forest Lake Boat, climb and crawl through the Four Tower Play Unit and enjoy a ride on the fabulous fairytale swan springer.

Children will also be able to operate the sand digger and work in the sandpit, glide across the play area on the cableway, have a thrilling ride in the spinner bowl and explore the mega deck tower and tree house.

In addition, a second sensory play area, adjacent to the splash pad will also be created.

Councillor Elaine Marper said:“This major investment demonstrates further our commitment to improving Normanby Hall Country Park as a top visitor attraction.

“The new play areas come at an exciting time in the Park’s history. Earlier this year we were delighted to welcome the region’s first Go Ape treetop adventure course and there are plans to hold more events, make improvements to the café and develop the South Lodge area.

“We have carefully considered the plans for the new play area to ensure they reflect our aim to make the Park as accessible to as many visitors as possible. The new additions to the Park will provide a great area for children and toddlers to play.”

Work is set to get underway on Monday with the new play areas expected to be open at the end of May.

While the exciting transformation is taking place, visitors will be able to enjoy mini golf, giant jenga, giant connect 4 and other lawn games.

There is also a separate ‘little farmers’ play area in the Farming Museum, and the cottage in the woods.

The new playgrounds are part of a package of infrastructure improvements across the park, funded by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership.
