Two Leeds councillors have asked for local residents to have their say on potential improvements to Ashton Park in Harehills.

A consultation exercise has been undertaken to gather the opinions of residents on how best to improve the park and its playground. Potential improvements to the park include the planting of more foliage and an in installation of new climbing frames and swing sets.

Repainting of existing equipment, installation of different coloured play matting and contouring of parts of the ground are also among the potential upgrades. The consultation was launched after Leeds City Council secured funding for improvement and residents wanting a say can take part in an online survey.
