The old playground at Drage Reserve  had reached its end of life but rather than replacing it with similar equipment, the Council identified an opportunity to create a more inclusive playground that offers a variety of play experiences for children of all abilities.

The new playground area also features a rubber base, making it accessible and safe for all children.

Thanks to the generosity of the Count Me In Foundation the playground is now home to a wheelchair-friendly trampoline which has been a welcome addition for families.

The Council was overwhelmed with positive feedback about the new play equipment, which complements the nearby nature play area in Felixstow Reserve.

The first stage of the redevelopment, which was completed in September 2019, also included a renewed car park and new toilet facilities.

Further works were undertaken during summer 2019–2020 to provide additional more accessible entry points to the playground area, seating, barbecue facilities and drinking fountain, landscaping and irrigation.
