EXCITED youngsters enjoyed the opening of a new play area in Ridgewood.

Developers Linden Homes installed the play area as part of their Fernley Park development. Children and their parents met to witness its launch and the area is now proving hugely popular with locals.

The site includes a zip-wire, slides down grassy banks, a wooden sculpture, play animals, sandpit, a rope bridge and climbing frame. It was located to be overlooked by homes so youngsters can safely run about under the eyes of grown-ups.

On duty on the day to welcome people to the area were was the developer’s site manager Steve Green who joined in the fun with some of his colleagues trying out the activities.

Steve said: “From the faces of the children it was plain to see how much they enjoyed their new play area, and it was a real pleasure to be there to hand it over personally to them and their parents.”

“We’re not about building houses - we are about communities too and projects like this show how determined we are to achieve this. We’re delighted the play area has become a great meeting place for youngsters and families in the community.”
