Works are well under way at Alexandra Play Park!

7th September 2021 in Council News, Penzance, Services

Lots has changed at the park since refurbishment works started back in July

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 were in great need of refurbishment.

After a formal tender process, which took place earlier this year, Councillors voted to award the works contract to D A Giles at an Extraordinary Full Council meeting held on Friday 18 June 2021.

What works have been done so far?

Alexandra Play Park

  • Old play equipment is being given some much needed TLC
  • New footpath surfaces have been laid
  • The railings have been regalvenized, treated and repainted
  • Weeds have been removed to make way for new planting which will be pollinator friendly
  • The beds that line the front wall of the park have also been cleared and re-planted with hardy plants that can withstand the winds and salt air on the seafront!

Tennis Courts

  • New fencing has been installed
  • A brand new court surface has been laid
