Julia Eddy, chairwoman of the Bulwark Residents Group, said: “We are so grateful to all the organisations that have contributed to this project.
Special thanks must go to the young people of the estate for their fund-raising activities and to SITA Cornwall Trust for its grant of £30,000 out of the total £37,042 project cost.
“The residents on the estate have shown extreme dedication to this project over the past three years and we are delighted that all the hard work has paid off.
“We look forward to the official opening and celebrating our achievement.”
Town mayor Jonathan Radford-Gaby said: “This project goes to show that a group of residents who want to make a positive change can come together and really make a difference.”
Deputy mayor Mike Thomas, who is also chairman of the town council’s Play & Young People Committee, added: “The residents of Bulwark should be extremely proud of what they have achieved.”
The residents group raised £1,850, including contributions from the West Briton and Cornwall Councillor Wallis’ Community Chest. SITA Cornwall Trust contributed £30,000, Helston Town Council gave £2,192, Helston Downsland Charity £2,000, Sanctuary Group £1,000 and Cornwall Council replaced the wire fencing.
