It was all smiles as youngsters helped open a play area in Daybrook today after it was given a £65k facelift.
The park on Salop Street Recreation Ground, Daybrook, closed at the beginning of October so work could begin on the revamp and new design which is aimed at children aged 3 to 12 years.
Today (November 13) children from nearby Arnbrook Primary School joined the Mayor of Gedling Meredith Lawrence and Mayoress Wendy Lawrence at the official opening and got to try out the new play equipment.
Along with traditional playground favourites, visitors to the play area can now enjoy a multiactivity unit which includes 4 metre long monkey bars, a climbing wall, tubular slide and spinner. There is also a bowl swing, tic-tac-toe play panel and lottery play wheel, to encourage group play and social interaction.
Councillor Peter Barnes, Portfolio Holder for Environment said; “This park was in desperate need of a refurbishment and we’re delighted that we’ve been able to help give the children in Daybrook a new play area to go to and a place where they can enjoy themselves.”
