New playground opens at Queen’s Park


A new playground has been unveiled at Queen’s Park – with youngsters queueing up in excitement to have a go on the new equipment.

A total of £165,400 has been invested in the Crewe project by Cheshire East Council and partners including the Heritage Lottery Fund, WREN and private fundraisers.

Nineteen new pieces of equipment were selected after consultation and market research driven by Sir William Stanier School in Coppenhall. Pupils wanted the equipment to be as inclusive as possible, exciting and stretch all abilities and youngsters confidence.

Boulders and tree logs have been incorporated into the design to integrate as many different ways to play as possible.

Councillor Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member with responsibility for health and wellbeing, said: “This partnership has enabled us to provide an exciting facility for the users of Queen’s Park with new equipment to suit all ages and abilities.

“When the fencing came down there was a great deal of excitement among the young people visiting the park to play for the first time on the new equipment.”

And that’s not all, in the autumn there will be a further addition to the play area. A six metre tall ‘Buccaneer Tower’ – a metal climbing structure with multi-level platforms, ladders and ropes – will be the signature piece for the park. Then, to complete the project, the existing ornate shelter will be refurbished and repositioned to provide cover and a meeting point for families.
