A new £4.8m plan to create something 'truly special' at Runnymede Pleasure Grounds has been unveiled.

Runnymede Borough Council has released early images indicating what it hopes to achieve, although it is all still at an early stage.

Peter Winfield, the community services manager for green space at Runnymede, said: "This could be very special.

"We have a great opportunity to turn Runnymede Pleasure Grounds into a fantastic park.

"The unique location, a beautiful riverside near Coopers Hill and Runnymede Meadows, really lends itself to create something wonderful with modern facilities such as a new café, wet and dry children's play spaces and better paths linking to the surrounding attractions.

"That is why we want to gather views from as many people as possible on the conceptual scheme we have worked up, which we can then feed into the formal design process later in the year."

Some of the designs include wooden chalets surrounded by woodland, to a galleon play area for youngsters as well as open spaces along the river.

The plans were due to go out to public consultation last week prior to the project being put out to tender.

Public consultation sessions were held in the United Church in Egham High Street over the weekend.
