Chippenham Arc opens new play park

A new play park has opened in Chippenham on Westmead Playing Field, offering a fun and exciting space for children to play and explore.

The new bespoke play area, made almost entirely from wood, is adjacent to The Arc climbing centre, skatepark and café.

Created by Bristol-based natural outdoor play equipment specialist, Touchwood Play, The Arc Park includes a Wildwood Tree House, Hollow Log, Play Hut, Sand Tower with pulley, two slides and many other fun features.

The Arc is run by The Climbing Academy and includes a cafe with a large outdoor decked seating area which overlooks the new park area. The Arc Cafe is open to the public seven days a week.  Children can also access the enclosed park from within the outdoor cafe area at The Arc by a bridge that crosses over to the Wildwood Tree House.

The car park on Westmead Lane, has recently been resurfaced and now includes over 20 spaces allocated for users of The Arc facility. A new payment system is in place for the spaces allocated to The Arc. The new system will see vehicles have their number plates registered as they enter, and payment made via phone or the RingGo app.
