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
January 15th 2011
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.

New climbing frame
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.
December 11th 2010
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.
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

The big news is the new play area will be open from Friday 27th August ready for the carnival
The last minute fittings going in are the swings

Another swing type of thing
The railing are being installed that were removed from the picnic area. The opening is just in time as the kids are still off school and I have no doubt there will be lots coming to try out the new area.
Next door the Fair is in town ready fro the Carnival
Friday 20th August 2010
New keep fit equipment has gone in at the rear of the bowls hut so now you can get down to the park and have a free work out. I am sure the Park manager will be there every morning leading by example
A long last an old friend Dobin has returned to the Queens Park play area It an old favourite of many children and was condemned this year and removed. But now its back having been restored back to its former glory and to bring pleasure to the next generation of young children in the new play area
The play area other equipment is going in thick and fast but there is a delay for the massive climbing frame which first need planning permission.

The play area work this week has been around getting in the safety surface and paths for the area so there doesnt seem to be a lot of work done but getting the safety base down is a big job

There are lots of new things going in on the new play area despite the bad weather we have been having. The sit on roundabout above
The sensory area has things to make noise and a Simon Say along with other sensory toys something the very young will love
A big spider climbing frame come trampoline has just gone in which seems like a lot of fun and the tyre swing frame is also in. More good news Dobbin(rocking horse off the old play area) is being renovated and will be back soon

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
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.

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
12 July 2010
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.
