Swanley Town Council continues to re-invest income received from Swanley Park and this year are creating a brand-new Soft Play facility for children, which is due to open next month.
This is in addition to more than £350,000 invested last year, creating a larger Splash Pool which was enjoyed by more that 8000 people during the summer whilst adhering to Government guidelines.
Swanley Town Council does not receive any funding from Government or Sevenoaks District Council towards the maintenance of Swanley Park and the income from park operations is crucial to sustain investment to make improvements in the park each year.
In line with the Government’s roadmap, the Soft Play facility, which is set across 3 floors of tumbling fun will be opening in May.
The Soft Play is farm themed and will be known as ‘The Barnyard’, and will be available for daily walk-in sessions as well as bookings for both individual sessions and parties.
Other Investments made in Swanley Park over the last 12 months by Swanley Town Council include:-
• Moving and increasing the size of the Hand Boat Pool
• Relocating the Waterslide to a designated water area
• Replacing the safety surface for the outside playground near the café
• Upgrading the toilet facilities
• Improvements to paths around the parks
Swanley Town Council takes pride in ensuring Swanley Park is a space for everyone to relax, play and exercise and staff work tirelessly to keep the park clean and tidy and to a high standard.
Swanley Town Council are hoping to attain the Green Flag Award for the fourth year in a row, and have also entered the South & South East In Bloom Award competition for the third year in a row having obtained a Silver Gilt award in 2020.
