Playground at Drovers Way

Drovers Way Playground

Public display of proposed new playground at Drovers Way (at Clos Parc Radyr)

A partnership has been established, between R&M Community Council, Cardiff Council, the Clos Parc Radur Management Committee and Redrow Homes to deliver improvements to the children’s playground at Drovers Way.  There is some further information here.

To date, one swing has been replaced – and over £25k earmarked for further improvements.

In addition, Jamie Grundy, a local resident, is developing a crowdfunding campaign to fund the one or two, remaining, unfunded items of equipment. He has already established a twitter feed in relation to the crowd funding. You can follow this at:

All of this will ensure that, for the first time, the playground circle will be full of equipment, rather than half empty.

Redrow Homes is also considering what work needs to be done to prevent mud and water flowing onto the site – as happens now.

Local residents will have an opportunity to view Cardiff Council’s plans for the playground, as part of Redrow’s Plasdwr drop-in session on Thursday, 7 February at the New Church Rooms (between 4pm and 7pm). Comments and suggestions will be welcomed.
