Campaigners fighting to save play equipment at King's Head Meadow have spent the weekend on the site, with protest leader Derek Ward saying about 40 people are enjoying a picnic there this afternoon.
Wymondham Town Council wanted to remove some equipment due to noise and anti-socials behaviour complaints but it sparked a week long protest.
The campaigners, known as the The Kings Head Meadow Playscape Campers, are forming an action group to take part in a mediated process with Wymondham Town Council to see what can be done next.
They are holding a meeting at Wymondham Football Club on Monday from 7pm.
In June, the town council agreed to remove some of the equipment from the park and relocate them after complaints of anti-social behaviour and noise.
