Reading Borough Council park improvement programme


Reading’s Cintra Park now has a circular tarmac path around its perimeter and several new impact-absorbing surfaces. For those wanting to keep in shape, there is a new outdoor fitness trail station with equipment including a vault, a straddle jump, parallel bars and bars for chin ups. Steel distance markers at every 100m around the park can help runners to monitor their progress.

Access to the park has been improved through new landscaping to the main entrance and modifications to the Northumberland Avenue entrance. Three new seats will complete the remodelling.

The Cintra Park revamp cost £36,000 and was funded by Section 106 agreements, which are payments for community facilities negotiated by Reading Borough Council from developers as part of the planning process
