A defibrillator is to be installed in Eaton Park, after city councillors granted planning permission for the life-saving kit.
Judith Lubbock, Liberal Democrat city councillor for Eaton, has asked for permission to install the defibrillator after the local community raised more than £2,000 towards the scheme.
A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest.
Mrs Lubbock, who is also vice chairman of Friends of Eaton Park, had said: 'It's the crucial minutes after a heart attack that can determine if a person's life is saved.'
Eaton Park regularly hosts Parkruns and sports such as football and tennis.
