The new children’s playground in Aireville Park is now open – with an exciting range of play equipment including climbing frames, slides, swings, tunnels, a spinning swing, a den-building area, a sand-pit, and musical instruments.
Thank you to all our generous donors, together with Craven District Council, we raised over £160,000 to pay for Phase One of the play area, with generous grants and donations from a range of organisations, businesses and individuals.
Two sections of the playground are still fenced off, awaiting Phase Two, which should be completed later this spring.
We’re absolutely delighted to see the playground open – we’ve been working towards this for so long and it looks fantastic.
We’re very grateful to all those who have supported and sponsored our fundraising campaign and it’s brilliant to see so many children and families enjoying the new equipment already.
The jungle bridge and cargo nets are currently fenced off and need to stay closed for a little longer until the grass turf has taken.
The playground will be quite muddy for the next two months until Phase Two is finished and the bare soil is seeded and turfed. Please wear wellies and outdoor clothes, to keep to the paths and hard standing areas and keep off the bare soil. It is also advisable to take some wipes for cleaning seats on the equipment. We will make sure there is a full spring-clean of the equipment when Phase Two is completed!
We hope you are all as delighted as we are!
