Canal Fields Play Area Ready for Explorers

Living Magazines Canal Fields Play Area

Canal Fields Play Area in Berkhamsted opened on Thursday 4 August following a complete refurbishment to improve the play experience for young children.

The transformation has removed tired old metal play equipment with modern wooden play structures including a castle, train and climbing frames. It includes a brand new sand pit and inclusive play equipment. New slides, swings and benches have also been installed.

This project has been funded by contributions from developments in the local area.

Cllr Graham Barrett, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services and Cllr Graeme Elliot, Portfolio Holder for Corporate Services, met the Council’s Parks Officer Rob Cassidy earlier this week to explore the new park.

Cllr Barrett said: ‘It’s fantastic that we have been able to use money from local developments to fund the much-needed improvements to this very popular local park. It has a fantastic range of equipment for children of all ages, providing families with a great place to visit throughout the holidays and all year round.’
