New play area for Chapeltown

Have your say

A GROUNDBREAKING play area has been opened in a Sheffield park.

The Friends of Chapeltown and High Green Parks led the scheme to create the new £200,000 play area in Chapeltown Park.

It has been designed to provide challenging and exciting natural-play experience for children and young people aged eight to 13.

There is a large slide built into a slope, a jungle climber, a round platform swing and a play village.

Natural elements including banks, tree trunks, sand areas and boulders complete the area, which also has seating.

A sensory garden and willow tunnel will soon be planted to encourage connection with nature.
