The popular Charlton Lakes play area has recently re-opened following a major refurbishment.
The area now boasts interactive sand and water play, a wooden multi-play unit including climbing bars, ropes and a treehouse, and a dedicated zone for older children with enhanced swing facilities and a basket swing. The play park has been re-landscaped to complement the new equipment, and all weather play surfaces have been laid to encourage use of the park throughout the whole year.
Councillor Tony Ward, Community and Leisure Portfolio Holder, said: “The completed play park looks fantastic. It is designed to appeal to a range of ages from toddlers through to older children and is a brilliant resource for the residents of Charlton and the wider area.”
Some minor landscape reinstatement and painting work is still to be carried out dependent on weather conditions, but the park is now open for fun!
The scheme follows a consultation earlier this year with local residents and users of the play area, and the outputs from the consultation helped to inform the type of play equipment that has been installed.
