An Ipswich playground will be closing for around a month to allow improvements to be carried out at the site.

The playground area at Bourne Park, which runs between Wherstead Road and Stoke Park Drive, will be closing on April 21 while the borough council improves the facility.

The toilets will also be closed for refurbishment.

The park itself will remain open.

A council spokesman said: “We apologise for the inconvenience while the work progresses but we are sure visitors will like the refurbishment when it reopens at the end of May.”

These include the sites at Monmouth Close and Halifax Road and teen areas at Whitland Close and Halifax Road.
