Acton Green Common's Playground Reopens
New and improved playground holds party to celebrate
Acton Green Common playground has reopened after months of regeneration finally came to an end.
The new playground features state of the art play equipment including swings, multi-units for juniors and toddlers, a seven piece adventure trail, springers and a roundabout giving this popular play area a new lease of life.
The money for the redevelopment came from funds gained from a developer of Chiswick Business Park to mitigate the negative impact of one of the largest new office developments in London.
Local councillor Gary Malcolm attended the first day of the upgraded playground saying, " it is crucial for people, especially young people, to have a range of play areas to meet, socialise and have fun exercising. With so many people obese it is vital that councils get behind schemes of this type."
To celebrate the completed playground, Richard Pudney, Landcape Architect for London Borough of Ealing, organised an opening party on Wednesday 24th November. Unfortunately due to the time of year, daylight did not allow for an after school opening.
The afternoon included a ribbon cutting, sweets and games for the children
Cllr. Malcolm praised the new playground's equipment and said that positive comments from the parents flooded in during and after the opening. He also thanked the council officers who worked hard to make sure that the work was done quickly to improve the area.
