A children's play park in Ipswich is being refurbished, with a new climber set to be installed.
Work started this week at Brunswick Park, which is designed for children aged between two and seven-years-old.
The work will include a new impact absorbent surface to improve safety as well as several new pieces of equipment including swings, slides and springers.
A climber for children aged up to 12 years old will also be installed outside of the fenced play area.
The new equipment will provide opportunities for children of all ages and abilities to play together.
