Merton Council has opened the new multi-use sports area in Dundonald Rec in time for the Easter holidays so children and their families can take full advantage of the new tennis and netball courts.
Details of times the courts will be open to the public are on the council’s website: www.merton.gov.uk/dundonald-updates
The opening of the courts follows hot on the heels of the new public playground opening earlier this month.
The courts and the children’s playground as well all the preparation for the improvement works for the forthcoming expansion for Dundonald Primary School and new pavilion are included in the council’s £467,000 investment in the Rec. The next phase of the works will now begin including the school extension and replacing the pavilion. The final stage will see the multi-use sports area and the playground extended by a third when the old pavilion is replaced.
Leader of Merton Council Councillor Stephen Alambritis said: “It’s great to see these new courts open in time for the holidays. Along with the bright new playground that has already seen good use, the new sports area demonstrates our commitment to the Rec and its long-term future as a place for families to enjoy.”
