New equipment is on the way to Pine Road Park in Winton, and to Winton Recreation Ground.
Councillor Simon Bull explains: "We're having some new equipment installed here, under the Community Infrastructure Levy that's paid whenever people put new buildings up, making a contribution into the community. We've just signed off on a scheme at Pine Road Park to put in three new pieces of equipment, replacing some equipment that's already gone and some that's still here but looking a bit shabby and reaching the end of its life.
"It's good news. It's not a full makeover that I would like, but of course the funds don't allow that. But a few more pieces of equipment to improve this park, Pine Road Park, that's been crying out for it."
There is also some new investment going into Winton Rec, to replace a piece of equipment over there and install some bike stands, near to the cafe over there.
Simon comments: "Along with the pond that should be going in at the Rec, it's really improving over there. It's a tremendous park, as is Pine Road Park, and the more we can do to get them used, especially at the moment when people are stuck indoors - you can get the children out, get a bit of exercise, it all helps with physical and mental health.
"By the way, as I mentioned the cafe at Winton Rec - if you haven't tried it yet, go over there and try their paninis - very recommended!"
