Public Park | Frome, Somerset

  • Contract Type: D&B
  • Client: Frome Town Council and Frome Recreation and Open Grounds Supporters
  • Status: Complete
  • Completed: July, 2012

We became involved voluntarily with the local community group F.R.O.G.S. to illustrate ideas and consultation for an application to Community Spaces, a Big Lottery Fund. F.R.O.G.S. were successful in being awarded £50k to which the town council added a further £15k.

We subsequently managed two design and build contracts that were constructed at the same time. The first was with Back-On-Track, for a new type of bike track called a Pump Track which has been a resounding success that has exceeded expectation since opening at the end of July 2012.

The second contract was with Jane's Ponds, for play area improvements that included a bespoke play tower within a large sand pit and sculpted landscape.
