We’ve worked with you, the children of Stratford, to improve Apex Park by building a new BMX/pump track and nature-based playground.
In 2020, the children of Stratford voted for what they’d like included in the new nature-based playground and BMX/pump track.
We’ve created the first design based on those votes, and now we’re working to finalise the design based on what you told us.
We’ve created the final design based on what you told us.

Questions received so far
Q. Will you knock down the Shakespeare playground?
A. No, the existing Shakespeare playground will stay and the new nature-based playground and BMX/pump track will be built next to it.
Q. Will I be able to ride my scooter on the BMX/pump track?
A. Yes. The BMX/pump track will be made of asphalt and is suitable for skateboards, scooters, rollerblades, mountain and BMX bikes.
Q. I wanted a zip-line across the river – why wasn’t this included?
A. We looked at all of the feedback and ideas you gave us earlier in the year.
We included the most popular ideas, to ensure the concept design reflected what the majority of community wants to see in Apex Park.
Some suggested ideas were deemed too costly, too difficult to achieve or not within the scope of the project, including a zip-line crossing the Avon River, rocket play equipment, a swimming pool, a fish pond and a basketball court.
We are now building your new nature-based playground and BMX/pump track. It will be ready for you to use in the coming months.
We've created educational and fun activities for you to enjoy including some online games. Check them out.
