Friends of Aireville Park are working with Craven District Council (CDC) to improve the park’s facilities.
Newground landscape services were appointed in August 2016 by Craven District Council to produce designs for the new play area. Over a period of months, we worked with Craven District Council and Newground to carry out an extensive community consultation period to shape and alter the design to ensure it reflected local needs and desires. CDC received 122 consultation responses.
The first phase of the playground will also feature equipment including a toddler climbing frame, swings, a turntable roundabout, a climbing tower, a sandpit, a climbing castle, rope bridges and climbing nets, a den-building area, basket swing, dragonfly and butterfly play sculptures and a log trail.
A second phase, which will follow when the council receives around £60,000 from planning gain, will include a larger climbing frame and a multi-play unit, a spinning swing, scramble nets and more play sculptures.
While work is taking place the main path in the park will be closed from the bandstand up to the bollards at the top of the path. An alternative access through to Skipton Academy and Craven College will be available via the steps or the ramp down to the Craven Leisure car park. Skipton parkrun will be able to take place as normal.
