New Water Play At Stourbridge Park

Families visiting Mary Stevens Park this summer will have a ‘splashing’ time thanks to a new water play facility that’s being installed there.

Dudley Council has undertaken a recent programme of improvements at the Stourbridge park following a successful application for £2.6m of Heritage Lottery Fund money.

Savings made throughout the project means there are sufficient funds remaining to purchase the new equipment and work will get underway at the beginning of May to remove the existing splash play area, which has been on site for 18 years.

The new facility is expected to be finished in July with the main area to include water jets, cannons, a spray loop and a flower water feature. A toddler area with water jets and a smaller water feature will also be installed. Alan Lunt, strategic director for place, said:

“This work was not part of the original Heritage Lottery Fund restoration programme but families have told us that they would like to see this improvement and the savings made mean we are now able to include it.

“We are confident that this feature will be particularly popular with families visiting the park during the warmer months of the year.”

The new facility will cost £140,000. It will benefit from fresh rubber surfacing, a new control box with state of the art pumps and ll reduce water waste and operational costs.
