Hundreds of people flocked to see the opening of a new play park.

The play park on the Northburn estate in Cramlington had undergone a major refurbishment thanks to Cramlington Town Council.

And last Friday dozens of residents flocked to the official re-opening, carried out by council chairman Anne Mitcheson and local councillors Wayne Daley and John Collins.

The council has carried out a series of park refurbishments in recent months, with Northburn’s Horton Park the last to be done.

Parents and toddlers came along in the sunshine to enjoy and new embankment slide, spinning wheel, climbing and swings.

Local councillor Wayne Daley said: “This is a fantastic park for our youngsters and I am delighted that so many people turned up to enjoy the day.

“The feedback from locals has been amazing and this park joins the rest of Cramlington’s play areas to make our town a great place for our toddlers to grow up.”

Cramlington Town Council funded the park with a contribution from Coun Daley’s Small Scheme Fund.

The Park design was consulted on with local people and schools, with consultation carried out by The Play Practise.

Paul Taylor, from The Play Practise, said: “We are delighted to have worked in partnership with Cramlington Town Council to provide a facility which will be well used for many years to come.”
