New role for former Donkey Trail

Posted by Town Hall Staff 05 March 2015

Following a consultation with resident on a new role for the former donkey trail it has now been decided that the area should become a Trim Trail.

Felixstowe Town Council and Suffolk Coastal District Council are working together on the project after £15,000 funding has become available through the Outdoor Play Space Fund to provide a new facility for young people and adults.

Residents were asked to take part in a survey and consider three options for the site located between the old boat pond and the small amusements; an Outdoor Gym, Trim Trail or a Parkour activity area. Over 260 people responded to the consultation and the Trim Trail option emerged as a narrow favourite. Read about the consultation here.

Installation of the equipment is scheduled to start on 23 March and it is expected that the site will be open to the public before the end of March.
