This playground was completely redesigned and improved as part of the Playbuilder project in 2010.
The old swings and climbing frame were retained and repainted with the addition of new equipment including a Hags-smp a buddy swing , an aeroskate and a gyrospiral all supplied by Proludic, a small revolving and rocking dish and a Tayplay spinning cone climber supplied by Sutcliffe Play to provide a range of new play experiences for children aged 3 to 14 years old.
Some relandscaping was also carried out using the excavated spoil from the installation works provides different ground contours to add interest in this play area.
Picnic tables have been provided to extend the time that families may use this area for informal leisure.
The play area was opened by the Mayor of Poole Councillor Charles Meachin on Friday April 9th 2010.
The play equipment in this play area was manufactured and installed to comply with current safety standards applying at the time of installation and all items of equipment are provided with a safer surface where required.
The play equipment and the immediate surrounding areas are inspected on a regular basis. An annual inspection is also carried out by an independent qualified organisation that prepares a safety audit and a report to enable the Council to plan long term maintenance and renewal.
This playground is locked at dusk each night by local residents to prevent anti-social behaviour.
Further to the improvements above the old climbing frame was renewed in March 2015 and a new Diabolo multi-play unit supplied by Proludic and a new DDA compliant "Ark" springer supplied by Hags-smp. This further widens the age range and offers a new play experience for younger children.
Access to the play area is from Uppleby Road where there is some limited parking.
