8th July 2021 in Council News, Local News, Penzance

Much needed refurbishment works are due to start at the Alexandra Playpark and nearby Tennis Courts in Penzance from Monday 12 July

The playpark will remain open as works are carried out in clearly roped off areas. Meanwhile, the tennis courts will be closed for resurfacing – an update on when this will be will be made on our website and Facebook page.

Residents and businesses in the immediate area will be receiving a letter in the coming days to inform them of the start date and proposed works.

We apologise for any inconvenience the works may cause and would like to thank residents and businesses in advance for their understanding as we work to ensure these important community assets are improved for residents and visitors.

As part of Phase Two of Devolution from Cornwall Council, Penzance Council are taking on the management of Alexandra Playpark and the Tennis Courts located on Alexandra Road this year.

Both the playpark and Tennis Courts are well used by residents and visitors but are now greatly in need of refurbishment.

Following a unanimous resolution of the Council at the 24 March 2021 meeting, a formal tender process took place to find a contractor to carry out the refurbishment works: Penzance Town Councillors voted to award the works contract to D A Giles at an Extraordinary Full Council meeting held on Friday 18 June 2021.
