New playground in Brockwell Park.

Does anyone know when the new playground is re-opening? Kids really looking forward to trying it out.

Re: New playground in Brockwell Park.

Looking forward to it myself Jean, we will bring our daughter down there, she loves a good park.

I took a walk over the weekend and saw that the works are still ongoing. The Friends of Brockwell Park website is usually a good place to get info. Their latest, dated 12th April states:

"Children’s Playground: Fencing currently being erected. Trees have been planted. Shrub beds currently being planted. Minor repairs being undertaken. Grass protection measures being installed."

For next week they state the work will be:

"Children’s playground: Continue erecting fence. Complete all tree and shrub planting. Other minor works."

So it sounds fairly finished. Looks like minor bits to be done. I am looking forward to another superb Brockwell summer.

Thank you for being so helpful and so thorough.

Looking forward to taking kids there to burn up some energy.

I walked past the playground yesterday and the man said May - but would not be drawn on a date. 

Then I remembered I got this email from my residents assoc which I didn't read properly - I will just copy and paste it in (comes from FoBP)

‘Sorry folks,

The enquiries are already coming in about the opening of the wonderful new children’s playground.  Due to the time it has taken to finish all the wooden attractions and to lay the turf around them – the grass will not be ‘take’ properly for a number of weeks.  The contractors and parks have now had a meeting and the opening date is the end of May.  This means it should be open for the Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend but not for the Easter Holidays or the May Bank Holiday. 

Although this is a disappointment for all – including parks staff – we hope you will agree that it has to be finished properly and we hope it will be worth the wait.

In the meantime we would like to ask all parents and children to stay out of the enclosure as those people who have already tried to get in will spoil it for everyone if we have to have further delays for remedial work.’
