A paddling pool type area (similar to Sutton on Sea) in Central Park ( would also support the Beach in the Park events) and a proper café, including an indoor seating area. The Park is a great space, but isn’t used to it’s full potential. It should be a tourist attraction for visitors and somewhere for locals to take their children for the day, rather than going to the coast. Other ideas might include a bandstand for summer time concerts, or impromptu entertainment, deck chair hire, crazy golf, etc. Could a small feasibility study be done to see what works in other areas. Families on low income, especially with more than one child, struggle to occupy children in the holidays, this would support them, without the need to travel or spend lots. Side shows targeting such things as healthy eating/healthy lifestyles could also be offered. More facilities in the park could see improvements to community integration by bringing families together through low/zero cost activities.
