A disused bowling green in Oxford is being converted into a play area as part of a £150,000 plan by the city's council. Security fencing
has already been put up around the site as work got underway last month. It is part of the authority's £3.1 million play area plan to install more facilities across the region.
The Florence Park Children's Centre is the last in the council's programme and will replace the old playground which had been damaged by drainage problems. However, councillors have stated that the new site will be on dryer land.
Shah Khan, Cowley ward councillor, told the Oxford Mail: "I think it's great that we are making use of the disused bowling green. I know people in the local community will really appreciate this facility once the work is completed.
Oxford council has been working hard to improve the region and has recently defended its position regarding roadworks in Headington, which residents have claimed make it harder to commute around the town.
