All smiles as playground re-opens

Children from Boomerang Nursery were among the first to enjoy new improved playground facilities at Saltdean Park.

Last week the children joined Councillor Gill Mitchell, chair of the council’s Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee, and ward councillors  to officially open the exciting new range of community facilities

The new equipment, funded by developer contributions, includes:

Adventurous play new facilities for children.
A comprehensive range of gym equipment for all abilities.
New benches
Talking bins
New lighting to improve safety and allow sports facilities to be used for longer.

The improvements were planned following consultation with residents, park users and ward councillors.

Councillor Gill Mitchell said:  “I’m sure families in Saltdean will enjoy their upgraded playground for many years to come. This site represents one of a number of playgrounds the council has improved over the last year.”
