The new facility is large enough for 185 children to play simultaneously and features 50 pieces of equipment. These range from traditional favourites such as swings, a see-saw and slides to a climbable net, 'Roll Runner’ and even a zip wire.
The nearly £270,000 play area replaces a smaller existing facility. It has been designed to meet the needs of parents and children alike, with a section specifically for toddlers and another for older children. The play area features a sensory area, wheelchair and buggy-friendly entrances, marked paths and a picnic area.
The upgrade was commissioned by DIO through their contractor Amey, who brought Nottingham-based specialist Proludic on board to design the play area and install the equipment.
