The five stunning Northumberland parks which are set for a major upgrade


Bot

Five parks in Northumberland are to be upgraded thanks to an investment of £287,000.

Northumberland County Council's cabinet approved to spend £204,000, with the remaining £83,000 funded by contributions from the likes of town and parish councils.

As part of its medium-term financial plan, the local authority has already set aside capital funding of £150,000 per year from 2018-19 to 2020-21 to invest in parks and green spaces.

So far, money has been spent at Jennings Field in Bedlington , Astley Park in Seaton Delaval, and Eastwood Park in Prudhoe.

Following the sign-off on Tuesday, Blyth's Ridley Park and Mermaid play area, Alexandra Park in Cramlington , Gallagher Park in Bedlington, and Rothbury's Riverside play area are all set to benefit.

At Ridley Park, £45,000 will be spent in total with £25,000 being used to refurbish the hugely-popular water play area.
