This project was funded on 13 Aug 2019!

What we would like to do is redesign and equip our playground so that it has a different look and feel. The way we want to do this is by: 1. To improve the quality of the playground surfaces, so that it is colourful by introducing safer play surfaces and splashes of colour! 2. Our kids have different needs, so we would like to make Ashburton Park playground more inclusive, by introducing designs and play equipment, that meet the needs of as many of our kids as possible. 3. We want to introduce new and upgrade our playground equipment, so that it challenges, encourages learning and our kids become more active as a result. 4. We want our playground to become a community hub where parents and carers can socialise and offer mutual support to each other. 5. We want our playground to become a destination playspace where all of the Croydon community can visit, play and connect with each other. 6. We want our playground to be part of the wider improvements happening in the park.

What we'll deliver:

  • upgrade the rocking horse
  • fit new tables and seating in the picnic area of the playground
  • re-surface the play surfaces around the play equipment so that it is more colourful
  • Add new play equipment in the playground
  • Redesign how the playground looks, so that it is more interesting

Why it's a great idea:

Our project is a great idea as it offers an opportunity for our kids to engage, learn and play together. We want our playground to be a community hub within the park where members of the community can come together and share experiences.

Steps to get it done:

  • Appoint consultant to prepare draft designs and play equipment with steering group
  • carrying out a playground design engaement event with park and playground users as well as the wider community
  • Hold a launch event where the redeveloped playground is opened by the Mayor of Croydon
  • The activation of the paly equipment with the help of play experts
  • construction of the playground
