A plan to develop the play area in Lancaster's Ryelands Park has been shortlisted to receive £15,000 from the ‘Parents for Playgrounds’ campaign and is relying on your votes to make it happen.
Local parents are seeking funds to develop a small play area in the park into an accessible play area for the district. They want to make improvements to allow both able and disabled children play and have fun, and generate funds for a specially designed slide feature.

Parents have until Wednesday 20th April to cast as many votes as possible for their nominated play area to ensure it becomes one of the top five earmarked for the funding.
At the end of April 2011, the playgrounds receiving the most votes will be announced and go on to receive a makeover worth up to £15,000 in readiness for the summer holidays.
