Development of the facilities at Onchan Park in March 2021 included installation of two new table tennis tables and a new accessible path from a new gate to allow wheeled users to access the MUGA, tennis court, table tennis and children’s play equipment.
The new gate is a little bit further up the hill from the old pedestrian gate on Onchan Avenue and allows easy access for pushchairs, wheelchairs, mobility scooters onto the middle level of the park.
Previously upper levels of the park were inaccessible unless you could use steps without handrails. Now the new gate and path provide access for all.
The path next to the tennis court has been repaired so that the edges are firm and stable.
- Anyone can turn up to play table tennis with the bats and balls provided by Friends of Onchan Park. Please leave the bats and balls at the park for the next people to use. ***Bats and balls coming soon!***
- Sycamore Table Tennis Club based at Carlton Le Willows Academy school site will be running some outreach sessions at the park this year.
Please park responsibly if you visit Onchan Park by car, to respect the neighbours of the park and other road users.
Friends of Onchan Park are working on a funding bid to level and resurface the green space at Onchan Park and connect the paths between the top and bottom areas of the park. We also plan to apply to FCC Communities in the autumn to refresh and replace the children’s play equipment.
