A new adventure playground has opened in York today (Wednesday).
York Stadium Leisure Complex opened the play park to give visiting children another activity to enjoy.
Free to access and open during daylight hours, throughout the year, the adventure play park is suitable for children from toddlers to teenagers.
The park has a host of features from climbing apparatus, slides and walkways along with all-weather and soft surfaces. It also has seating for parents and carers and lockable gates.
Also in the same area is an outdoor fitness space for leisure centre customers. It can be adapted for a variety of purposes including outdoor fitness classes, such as circuits, Buggy-a-cise and high intensity training classes as well as for children’s holiday club break-out areas.
Cllr Darryl Smalley, executive member for culture, leisure and communities at City of York Council, said: “Designed for up to 50 children to explore at a time, this playground supports our commitment towards play and exercise in the city’s open spaces.”
Cllr Nigel Ayre, executive member for finance and performance, said: “Our vision for the Community Stadium is very much for an all-family experience. Giving children an outdoor, all-weather exercise space for to enjoy fits that brilliantly.”
