New Roundhay Playground Open! 

 
Last week saw the launch of the brand new Lakeside Playground in Roundhay Park. The old Lakeside Play area was in need of upgrading, with some of the equipment being over 14 years old, it was very worn or in need of repair and the ground surface was very hard.

The playground had been closed since bonfire night last year and re-opened last week. The Friends of Roundhay Park have been keeping us in the loop with regular updates on the parks progress and we have to say the works have been completed very fast.

This project came to fruition all thanks to a group of dedicated mothers, Laura Webb, Petra Smith, Lexi Moffatt, Sara Dawson and Julia Wilson.

These ladies were all members of Friends of Roundhay Park, before they started the Roundhay Park Playground Appeal. The fundraising was a great success, five months into the appeal the group had raised enough to transform the Leeds play area.

Before... 

 
We visited the park in October 2018 to give our contribution towards the playground and we were back for the launch of the new playground, thrilled with the transformation.

Louise Lawrence from our Moortown branch said, “It’s wonderful to see the children enjoying the playground already; we love to support these projects and be involved with our community.”

Julia Wilson from Friends of Roundhay Park said, “This new playground has elements to draw in the park’s history and capture the children’s imaginations.”

The new playground has a lot more equipment to encourage children to be active, including; a castle climbing frame, swings, roundabout and lookout tower.

After! 

While the opening was taking place the children couldn’t help but play and were soon running around climbing on everything they could, even in the cold weather.

The history boards in the playground show pictures from the archives and the history of the park in years gone by.

We are pleased to have been a part of this project and are so glad this park will be around for future generations to come and enjoy.
