Local Play Area Given Exciting Refurbishment

Local News

A popular play area in Chapel Allerton has been transformed to provide a new and exciting space for children and young people to use.

Councillors Eileen Taylor, Jane Dowson and Mohammed Rafique (Labour, Chapel Allerton) have been planning the changes at the Woodland Lane site with local people for a number of months and have now been able to provide £7,000 funding to install a range of new equipment which offers something for all ages. The improvements are part of an ambition to offer the highest quality outdoor activities for young people in the area to encourage more active lifestyles.

The work, which has been carried out by the Council’s Parks and Countryside department, has seen the large old junior climbing frame replaced by a new toddler climbing unit and a toddler roundabout. However the most eye-catching change is now on the banking outside the play area where a new “Viper” unit has been installed. This dynamic rope swing is the first of its kind in the area and looks sure to be a hit with older children.

Councillor Eileen Taylor (Labour, Chapel Allerton) said:

“We know that young people and their parents have been wanting this area improved for quite a while so I’m delighted we have been able to deliver this new equipment. The views of residents were vital in helping us decide on the changes we should make and what we’ve installed is very different to anything we’ve seen before. It’ll be great to see people enjoying what’s on offer.”
