A much-loved community facility for families in Blacon has unveiled an eye-catching new look after a £40,000 makeover.
The activity centre at Blacon Adventure Playground has undergone a major refurbishment, with fresh paint throughout and a new floor and toilets installed.
The adventure playground, in Kipling Road, is managed by Avenue Services and also features an urban farm, environmental area and children’s garden.
The attraction is used by about 5,000 people every month and also caters for local community groups, schools and colleges.
As well as providing a more welcoming environment, the refurbished activity centre also provides improved facilities for users – with the hall now featuring floor markings for a variety of sports including netball, basketball, football and badminton.
Sandra Hewitt, Blacon Adventure Playground manager, said: “The refurbishment of this important community facility is fantastic news for the playground and for all the local people who use it.
“It looks like a brand new building and from the feedback we have already had we know this will make a real difference.”
The new-look activity centre at Blacon Adventure Playground is available to hire for events including children’s parties, educational use and sports. Opening times are from 11am to 7pm during the week and between 10am and 6pm at weekends.
