Construction of the new Pittville Park play area is progressing well, with several pieces of equipment now in place. The project is on track for opening in time for the summer holidays – to see what the finished scheme will look like, take a look at the video.

The majority of the cost of the new play area is being provided by Cheltenham Borough Council, but Friends of Pittville is fundraising for an additional £140,000 so that the whole project, including the aviaries and animal houses, can be completed at the same time.

So far we have raised over £4,400 through crowdfunding, and a significant amount through Just Giving and direct donation by cheque. We still need to raise a lot more, so please help us in one of the following ways:

  • via Just Giving
  • via MyDonate
  • or by sending a cheque made out to ‘Friends of Pittville’ to Friends of Pittville, 3 Burston House, Pittville Circus, Cheltenham GL52 2PU.

A full list of donors will be published in due course.

While the play area is closed, why not visit the west side of the park? You will find a wooden play trail and the Agg Gardner playground, which has recently had brand new play equipment installed – and of course the Boathouse Café.
