A report published as a result of a mediation process over the future of a play park has suggested play equipment can be kept at the current site.
In August, Wymondham Town Council wanted to remove some of the play equipment from the park on King's Head Meadow because of noise and anti-social behaviour complaints.
But parents fought the decision, held protests and formed the Kings Head Meadow Playscape Group.
The town council accepted an offer from Norfolk County Council to help facilitate a process to seek the views of the community.
Two consultation sessions were held in the town and residents were able to send in letters voicing their opinions.
The report stated keeping the equipment at the park and improving security measures, by installing CCTV and securing the park during certain times, would be an option to be considered.
Another option put forward is the relocation of some of the items to another area of the meadow, including nearer to the football club or Central Hall.

Sharon Hastings, the playscape group secretary, said 'We have always recognised the needs of those few residents that have an issue with play noise and feel that the reports suggestions of fencing, boundary changes or some equipment movement within the meadow can be achieved with consultation.'
The town council have said councillors will get together to discuss the report's findings to find the best way to move forward.
