Children in Royston will now be able to play in a revamped park after the all-new Serby Avenue play area was unveiled today at an official ceremony.
The three-month renovation to the park was completed earlier this year by Groundwork Hertfordshire on behalf of North Hertfordshire District Council.
The £64,000 project has seen new timber play logs installed along with new cradle swings, a zip wire and a new seating area.
The much-loved spider climbing frame has also been refurbished, along with the toddler equipment.
Councillor Jane Gray, the district council’s executive member for leisure, performed the official opening.
