New playground planned for Splash Point

IT will soon be triangle-treat time for youngsters at Worthing’s Splash Point leisure area.

Work is scheduled to start later this month on building a £90,000 children’s play facility next to the Beach House Grounds sandcourts – and the borough council is sharing the cost with Seaconomics, an EU regeneration project.

The playground’s attractions will be similar to those at the Lottery-funded play facility on the beach off West Parade.

And this Splash Point site has the added advantage of being more sheltered than its West Worthing equivalent, and the adjacent 
grassed banking will provide a comfortable relaxation area for mums and dads to keep an eye on their offspring.

Council leader Paul Yallop says in the latest issue of In Touch, Worthing Conservatives’ newsletter for Marine ward: “We hope this will relieve pressure on the West Parade playground, which has been more successful that we could ever have imagined.”
