Children from Cherry Tree School, the Mayor and local councillors celebrated the re-opening of the Berry Avenue playground.
Local school children were asked what facilities they would like in their playground, and our partners, Southern Green Landscape Architects, came up with an imaginative and colourful design.
Sitting proudly atop new safety surfacing, along with the usual swings and slides is a new stilted obstacle course, a galaxy climbing frame and a supernova – a fast spinning roundabout. All the equipment is accessible in wet weather and there are new seats for the grown-ups.
The £60,000 refurbishment was completed in time for the spring, as part of the councils’ three year, £4.5million programme of improvements to parks, playgrounds and open spaces.
