The town hall at last has come up with children’s wonder playground equipment designed by the kids themselves.
The play gear has been installed at two playgrounds at Poplar’s Bartlett Park and Bethnal Green’s Meath Gardens—and that’s just for starters.
Parks department bosses put their heads together with mums and dads and their offspring to come up with super designs.
There’s a “sensory path” and toddler swings in Bartlett Park that even nippers from birth and youngsters with additional needs can use, tagged as “creative play for children of all abilities”.
The £10million gear is being rolled out, as it were, at 60 East End parks and opens spaces with Tower Hamlets Council dipping into its capital investments coffers for the cash.
