Clearance work for the new Luxford Field play area has begun. Equipment and other structures are being broken up.
Uckfield Town Council agreed the work for the “people’s choice” in February after competing bids were displayed at a public exhibition.
The old play park had been blighted for many years by proposals to redevelop the town centre.
Those plans eventually hit the buffers and look highly unlikely to ever be revived.
The play area works are being carried out by HAGS-SMP, which also re-built the play areas at Hempstead Road, Hughes Way and Ridgewood Recreation Ground.
