Local children will be thrilled to know the playground in Primrose Hill has reopened and they can now enjoy new features such as a central ‘beach’ area, complete with a large sandpit, a water play feature and a wobbly bridge.
Popular existing features such as the giant scramble net and the swings have been retained.
Small ornamental trees have been planted to provide shade, colour and interest, and hedgerow planting has been added to the edges of the playground.
The space benefits from a new roundabout, more seating, and a raised sandpit table to ensure that children of all abilities can play together.
On the first day of reopening, members of The Royal Parks’ Help Nature Thrive team helped children make seed and clay animal sculptures. Supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, the Help Nature Thrive project aims to make the parks more resilient and biodiverse.
