A new adventure trail for children could be installed along the Walks at Dorchester’s Salisbury Fields.

The idea, with hop on and hop off equipment, is being considered as an addition to the traditional play area and the make the area more attractive to visitors.

Other ideas being planned by Dorchester Town Council for the Fields include more tree planting as part of its drive to help offset climate change.

The cheapest adventure trail is likely to cost around £4,000, including delivery and installation, although a discount of £1,300 is currently available if councillors decide to back the idea in the coming weeks.
