A ceremony took place today (Friday 16 June) to officially mark the opening of the revamped play area at Serby Avenue in Royston.
The three month renovation to the play area was completed earlier this year by Groundwork Hertfordshire on behalf of North Hertfordshire District Council (NHDC).
The £64,000 project has seen new timber play logs installed along with new cradle swings, a zip wire and a new seating area. The much loved spider climbing frame has also been refurbished, along with the toddler equipment.
Cllr Jane Gray, NHDC’s Executive Member for Leisure, performed the official opening. Councillor Jean Green, ward member for Royston Palace, also attended the event, along with representatives from Groundwork Hertfordshire including: Neville Reyner, Chairman; Mike Master, Director; Steve Harvey, Executive Director; Julia Watts, Senior Landscape Architect; and Keith Honour, contractor.
Cllr Gray said: “We are delighted with the results and we know from feedback that the local community is pleased too. The new equipment will provide hours of free fun for children of all ages for many years to come.”
