Pirate Park is officially open
We are pleased to announce that the Pirate Park in Barton-upon-Humber is now open.
The new play area is for young residents of Overton Court, Barton, and is made up of a pirate ship climbing frame, a sea saw, a swing and a springy seagull.
It forms part of a £200,000 improvement scheme for the area.
The 79 homes in Overton Court have also received upgrades to fences, and paths and the car parks have been resurfaced.
The work, which started at the end of 2015, was carried out by PBS Construction Ltd and was finished in July.
The park was officially opened on Monday 5 September 2016 at 1pm with Ongo Bear making a guest appearance. Over 50 people attended the opening with lots of children enjoying the new park.
Tim Ball, Project Manager at Ongo Homes, said: “We’ve been able to invest around £200,000 on improving the appearance of Overton Court and providing a new play area for the children to use.
“It’s pleasing to see the improvements which have been made and that residents are welcoming the changes we have made instead of making us walk the plank.”
Rebecca Murphy, an Ongo Homes tenant, said “It’s been a really good day. The kids really enjoyed it and didn’t want it to end.
“The Pirate Park here at Overton Court has improved the area massively, it not only gives the kids somewhere to play, but it brings the whole community closer.”
