The general trend has been for paddling pools to close, so it’s great we can move in the opposite direction and create something the community really wants.  Now the play area is up and running, it will act as a model that other areas can look to and recreate, so hopefully, more people can enjoy a low cost, family friendly day out.

The Duke’s Meadow Trust  started the project five years ago when local people prioritized recreating the old paddling pool, closed ten years ago, in a survey carried out by the Friends.
