Euston Street Park’s friends group has been successful in securing nearly £10,000 for the park in Euston Street, which is off Fishergate Hill and Marsh Lane.
The play areas within the park is due for a revamp and the children’s play area will see two new trampolines and new safety flooring thanks to the Big Lottery fund.
Clare Cobb from the friends group said they are still awaiting more funding which could see new play equipment for toddlers.
A first phase of work on the park has already been completed, with a basket swing, trampoline, gravity bowl and a cone climber all in place for children to enjoy.
Ms Cobb said: “Local children are very excited about their new play area and it has become a hive of activity.
“This has given people a real sense of pride in ‘our park’.”
