This is an open space split between to areas. The playground is within a housing estate and by a busy road with loads of noise and pollution.
The smell of the playground was a new rubber smell, as it was hot it made it really strong. There was no one else using the playground, it felt a bit weird being in this playground.
The equipment on the grassy side includes a climbing frame with a small slide, a spinning pole and a donut roundabout.
On the other side the equipment includes swings, climbing rope frame, wooden hut with slide, a long slide with many steps to climb (yes I did have to go on as instructed by Xavier.
There were a few benches on the edge of the playground, but no tables to sit at. The area is clean but graffiti and litter In the hut and at top of slide let it down. There are no toilets on site.
I enjoyed this park, but I was a bit little to climb the ropes and slide down the pole.
