Abbot Hall play area survey 2017

Closes 3 Oct 2017

Opened 31 Aug 2017


Abbot Hall Park is a popular park situated in the centre of Kendal. It has a play area, a bowling green and open spaces for visitors of all ages to enjoy.

We are seeking funds to improve the play area for local residents and visitors by redesigning it and installing new equipment. The play equipment is coming to the end of its life, it is worn and gradually pieces have been removed when they were beyond repair. The area is well used but does not provide play value for all ages and is neither exciting nor challenging.

The park itself is well used by local residents, we have been working with a group of park users, to consider options for improving the play area. We would now like your views on what you would like to see in the play area.

If you have any queries, would like to request additional copies or would like help taking part, please contact: Community and Leisure on: 01539 793 281 or email

The closing date is 3 October 2017

The results of the survey will be used to help us with planning the next stage of the improvements including tendering for and designing the new play area.

We will be consulting with residents and groups in the local area on the designs in the autumn.

The results will also be reported on the consultation section of the SLDC website
