M.U.G.A. – multi-use games area

 
Throughout the summer of 2015, the Multi-Use Games Area in the park was refurbished thanks to funding from Section 106 money. The design was created by Caloo and incorporates basketball, netball, cricket, tennis, football and various skills targets into the small area.

MultiActive encourages all children, regardless of ability, to gain confidence with sports, teamwork and mathematical thinking. Regular play supports children’s general health and fitness, while building hand-eye and foot-eye coordination.
