A children’s playground on Wandsworth Common has been officially reopened after a £165,000 revamp.

The new-look Chivalry Road playground was officially opened last week and now includes new safe play surfaces, including timber swings, slides, see-saws, climbing frames, benches and picnic tables.

Environment spokesman Councillor Steffi Sutters said: “This is superb news for children and families who live in this part of Battersea.

"The new play equipment is a very welcome addition, and is sure to delight our younger residents.

“Combined with the improvements at the nearby ball games area which is aimed at slightly older children and teenagers, it means we are able to offer something to young people of all ages in this corner of the borough.”

These upgrades come a few months after the nearby all-weather ball games area at Chivalry Road was refurbished as part of a separate £130,000 scheme.

A similar project is nearing completion at the nearby playground by St Mark’s Church in Boutflower Road.

All these refurbishment schemes are funded via the Wandsworth Local Fund (WLF).
