The Muirfield Road Recreation Ground, Arnold will be re-opening this week thanks to £100,000 funding from FCC Communities Foundation as well as contributions from local residents group, Warren Hill Action Group.

Works on the play park began in October and will be completed this week. The Deputy Mayor of Gedling will open it on Thursday 28 November at 2pm. Warren Primary Academy and members of the Warren Action Group will attend the opening. The new equipment in the play area includes a viper rope swing, 30-metre zip line, disability access roundabout and 5 metre tall multi-climbing unit with slide.

Gedling Borough Council and the Warren Action Group, a local residents group, made the joint funding bid for the improvements. The group have been working and campaigning since 2015 to revitalise the playground area and have received over £164,000 in grants and funding from various sources including FCC Communities Foundation, Gedling Borough Council, Nottingham City Homes and Nottinghamshire County Council. They were awarded £48,000 for a multi-use games area, installed in 2017, and £16,000 for an outdoor gym installed in November 2018.

FCC Communities Foundation are a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, conservation and heritage projects from funds donated by waste and resource management company FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund.
