We were really pleased to attend the community site opening for Harpenden Town Council at Westfield Recreation Ground this month.
Harpenden undertook a £68,000 refurbishment to improve the popular recreation ground and are thrilled to have worked alongside them.
It is always lovely to see new play facilities opened and the impact this has on the community who use them. Some of our favourite shots from the day are featured below.
The recreation ground in Harpenden which is used by hundreds of people in the town each year has been granted legal protection from any future development, thanks to a national campaign to find and protect green spaces throughout the country. Westfield Recreation Ground in Harpenden, is one of more than 100 sites identified by members of the public as part of the search launched by the Carnegie UK Trust and Fields in Trust to find and protect over 900 ‘lost’ playing fields and it’s new status was marked by a plaque unveiling which also coincided with the play area launch to the community.
Mayor Nicola Linacre said: “I hope the local residents will enjoy their new facilities here at Westfield Recreation Ground. There is something for everyone, from the very youngest to adults who want to get fit using the fitness trail equipment installed around the Recreation Ground. I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who contributed their ideas and efforts to ensure a successful project.”
