Ovington Drive Playground in Southport to close

SEFTON Council have taken the decision to close down a deteriorated playground to protect the safety of park visitors. The playground on Ovington Drive has seen rapid deterioration and decline in recent months and, despite repeated maintenance, it is no longer deemed fit for purpose. The council want to reassure residents that there are a number of other facilities close by which they can take full advantage of.

A spokesman for Sefton Council said:- "The playground at Ovington Drive is over 30 years old and while we have tried to sustain it with regular inspections and maintenance, the site has recently seen rapid deterioration. As a result we have decided to close the facility and decommission the old equipment, which was done with cabinet approval and ward councillors notified. While this is disappointing, the nearest alternative playground site to Ovington Drive can be found at Town Lane which is only a quarter of a mile away. The Town Lane playground has received substantial investment in the last few years and the equipment there has only recently been re-painted, meaning provision is still available for families to enjoy."
