This playground was improved as part of the first year of the playbuilder project. New equipment included a buddy swing supplied by Hags-smp, a new "Lightning" climbing frame, supplied by Wicksteed. The fenced play area is aimed at the younger age range of local children but it has now become popular with local children aged between 3 to14.
The existing swings were repainted and the Teacup Twister and Freddie the Frog springer were retained along with the metal balance trail all supplied by Wicksteed
The site was officially opened by Councillor Mike Wilkins on Monday 15 February 2010.
The play equipment in this play area was manufactured and installed to comply with current safety standards applying at the time of installation and all items of equipment are provided with a safer surface where required.
The play equipment and the immediate surrounding areas are inspected on a regular basis. An annual inspection is also carried out by an independent qualified organisation that prepares a safety audit and a report to enable the Council to plan long term maintenance and renewal
