Basketball Courts

Millhouses Park Refurb

Some of you may have noticed the basketball courts are fenced off, the finishing touches are currently being applied to a refurbishment. The courts will be open again in a couple of weeks.

The current courts are being renovated and repainted with existing backboards and hoops renewed. There will also a new second court created and also two lower kids nets added and new benches installed.

Thanks to Basketball England for their help on this project.

Getting ready for summer

We are getting ready for summer at Millhouses Park!

You may already have noticed the new steps leading from the boating lake to the river path, where the treacherous mud path was. These were built over two days by five FOMP volunteers and with great help from the Parks and Countryside Ranger Service.

Maintenance work has also been undertaken on the Watersplash, which is now all ready ready for some sun.

Finally the trim trail assault course is currently getting a much need revamp with artificial grass being added so hopefully no more muddy shoes!
