A previous playground in Harold Avenue closed in 2019 and although some items from that were retained for re-use, the new play area also includes new equipment such as swings and see-saw, as well as benches and perimeter fencing.

Surface improvements have also been made to the basketball area on nearby Sunny Clough park.

    “It’s wonderful to see this new play area opened,” she said. “It’s a great asset for the local community and I’m sure it will be very well used by local children who will have a great time enjoying it and playing in safe surroundings.”
