Stratford Editorial 6th Aug, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

PLAYTIME is set to be a fun affair for youngsters after new equipment was unveiled in Stratford.

Work to improve and upgrade the play area at Orrian Close began last year with the installation of a new measured mile footpath and outdoor gym equipment.

And as part of a wider scheme by Stratford District Council to improve the parks, the play area and green space has now been completely revamped.

Costing around £200,000, the facilities – including a zip wire, multi-play unit, trim trail with castle, rope swings and roundabout – have been funded by developer contributions from planning agreements.

Opening the new facilities this week, council technical services spokesman, Coun Mike Brain said: “This project has been developed through consultation with residents and groups.

“It has been designed to improve their health and well-being and we hope it will encourage them to enjoy the outdoors and become more physically active.”
