New addition in Tilehurst – Reading Today Online

It was installed in response to a survey of young people.

A fitness and social area has opened at the Cotswold recreation ground in Tilehurst.

It was opened last month by Tilehurst Parish Council, and jointly funded by the parish council together with a grant from West Berkshire Council.

The multi use games area (MUGA) includes outdoor gym equipment, children’s cycling and leisure areas is now open for use.

It was installed in response to a survey of young people conducted by the Parish Council in 2021. Grants from West Berkshire Council helped to deliver the community space.

A popular suggestion was that outdoor gym equipment be installed at recreation grounds and, on consideration, the Parish Council felt this would be a good way to repurpose the existing, run-down tarmacked base at Cotswold recreation ground.

Following the official opening, a larger event to mark the opening will be held later this year.
