THE Lady Taverners’ playground in Onchan Park is to close for repairs.
In the next few months Onchan Commissioners staff and contractors will carry out their annual programme of repairs and maintenance at all of their children’s playparks.
At the Onchan Park playground much of the play equipment is no longer economical to maintain so some of the items may be removed.
The commissioners will be appointing a designer to draw up plans for the make-over of the playground and the installation of new equipment.
Lead member for properties and amenities Rob Callister, said: ‘Our existing playparks will remain open at School Road, Lakeside, Ballachurry and Birch Hill but we think it will be safer to close the Lady Taverners’ Playground because of the amount of work that will be going on there.
‘The young people of Onchan can look forward to an exciting new play area for 2013.’
