June 04, 2019 - 188 views

A new play area has been opened at Daventry Country Park. The new play equipment includes a castle-themed fort with slides, a net bridge, a climbing wall, a variety of swings, a spring-mounted jeep ride, a smaller fort for toddlers, and the zip wire from the old play area, which has been refurbished and reinstalled.

Designed for children of all abilities, the play area features a range of inclusive activities, including a Glockenspiel play panel and talk tubes, a basket swing, and swings with inclusive seats with harnesses for children who have a limited ability to hold themselves upright.

It marks the first phase of a comprehensive programme of improvements to the Park’s paths, wooden structures and signage which will be taking place over the course of the year.

A new jetty will be installed opposite the current one, which is being totally refurbished, and the Visitor Centre and toilets will also be extended and improved.
