Play Area Refurbishment

The refurbishment of Redbourne Play Area is now complete.

Located in the centre of the village, the play area benefits from a new Orchard Teepee climbing frame, a Toot slide and a Nest swing (pictured above). An existing swing frame has also been upgraded. Along with the current equipment, the new activities will enable the play area to be used by a wider age range of children – from ages 4 to 12 year olds. Supported by adults, children with disabilities can also enjoy outdoor play.

Children are already using the play area and have reported how much they are enjoying using all the new equipment.
