Another children’s playground in Battersea has undergone a facelift.

Work has now been completed on a programme of improvements at the children’s playground next to St Mark’s Church in Boutflower Road.

Children under ten can now enjoy a redesigned play area with new equipment including a large climbing frame, seesaw and musical play trail.

Parks and open spaces spokesman Cllr Steffi Sutters said: “The play equipment that's been installed here was chosen by local families who took part in our recent consultation so I am delighted that we are making their choices a reality.

“Now the works are complete I’m sure it will prove to be a popular destination for young families in this part of Battersea.”

Earlier this summer the playground at Chivalry Road reopened after a £165,000 revamp – with new landscaping and new safe play surfaces provided along with new play equipment, including timber swings, slides, a see-saw, large climbing frame, benches and picnic tables.

These follow a short time after the separate all-weather ball games area in Chivalry Road was refurbished as part of a £130,000 scheme. As well as a new playing surface, fencing and renewed sports equipment, the floodlighting was also upgraded enabling young people to use it after dusk.
