Work to extend the playa area is scheduled to begin on Tuesday 6 April (the day after the Easter Monday Bank Holiday) and will last about five weeks. This means that the playground will be closed until early May. All existing equipment is being retained (except the see-saw, which has seen better days). We are enlarging the play area to include: a replacement see-saw; a ‘Nursery Rymes’ Multiplay; a ‘Holly Hedgehog’ springer; a multiplay unit for older children; a 4m high Activity Net; a ‘Crusader’ rope end swing; a ‘Running for Gold’ fantasy funrun; a ground level roundabout which is designed to facilitate disabled access; and a ‘Freestyle’ designed to give the fun of the skate park.
We are running for a competition to find children to ‘formally open’ the play area in the summer – COVID-19 restrictions permitting. Of course all the equipment will be available to everyone as soon as the installation team have finished their work.
