The climbing frame for older children is now up and running and there were children out enjoying it today

The new climbing frame has now got its play surface put down and should be open very soon. As with all things at this time of year the weather is a major problem which can soon put things back if we get more snow or frost

Over at the play area the new climbing frame has now got all the guy ropes in and the lads were working in the snow to get the job done. The safety matting was just going down today so it should be open in the very near future. It has been a struggle with the weather to get it done.

The play area’s new climbing frame and swings have made progress despite the bad weather with the new frame on site ready to be fitted. As you can see its like doing some Xmas puzzle trying to sort out all the bits for it.

New swings

 

DSCF2700

Despite the bad weather the play area is getting the new set of swings put in. The weather is against it as they cant cement them in while its so cold.

DSCF2707

As well as the new swings the ground is being prepared for the new climbing frame for older youths. It was hoped to get it in before Xmas but its all down to the weather as they can cement or put the rubber down in the bad weather

It looked as if a UFO had landed at the park this week (picture above) but its part of the new play area which despite the rain is going ahead with great speed

DSCF1714

New climbing equipment going in between showers of rain. Its been another week were the cafe and bowling green there has been work done but not a lot to see. The cafe looked like a new lake today as it was flooded with the rain. The footings are now in and its hoped the brick layers will be on site next week to start building so there will be something to see.

 

Sunday, July 18, 2010


The play area is going in leaps and bounds and as it was only a 10 week contract there is lots to see. Many of the footings for the equipment are in and they have tried the swings and things in the week to ensure they fit

The Play area is coming on in leaps and bounds with new section appearing almost daily they even have talking flowers in one area. At this rate it will soon be open and ready for the kids on holiday. The big equipment will be delayed as its that big it need planning permission. 

The old slide at the play area The popular Children's Play Area, which was refurbished in 1986 is a comparatively new addition to the Park, originally being provided in the late 1950's. Under the United Nations Charter, children have the right to play happily and safely, and many thousands do so on the up-dated equipment. Swings, slides, roundabouts and many other items all have rubber safety surfaces beneath them, covering the Crewe clay mud so the whole area can be properly used despite the weather.
