Rockingham Road Pleasure Park could be the best in the county according to a Kettering councillor.

Councillor for the All Saints ward Michael Brown said: “I really do think this park can be the best in the county.

“I would like to think we could get it up to a level to compete with Abington park in Northampton.”

He added that the Friends of Rockingham Pleasure Plark are in the latter stages of securing funding for a new outdoor gym and are working towards improving accesibilty to the park.

The planned improvements are part of a “masterplan” which will see targeted areas improved each time enough funding is secured – with the new, recently opened BMX track and the new path in the park being part of the plan.
