New toddlers'play equipment for Coronation Park

30 January 2018

​The Department for Infrastructure is replacing the equipment in the toddlers’ playground in Coronation Park.

The toddlers’ playground was last upgraded in 1989.

Although the equipment has been well-maintained, play equipment design and safety standards have moved on over the last 30 years and it is time to provide something new and exciting.

Work starts on Monday 5 February and is due to last for approximately six weeks (depending on the weather). During that period the toddlers’ play area will be completely closed to the public.

In general, the new equipment is designed for children between the ages of three and six. However, there will also be certain pieces such as cradle swings and rockers that are suitable for younger children.

The main central feature incorporates a run of various different activity elements for children to play on together. Other equipment includes swings, rockers, a see-saw, trampolines and roundabouts.

So no one is left out, a lot of the equipment has been designed to allow disabled children with special needs to play alongside able bodied children.  One example of this inclusive equipment is this roundabout which is suitable for wheelchairs.

Equipment will be safe to use but also exciting, challenging and innovative.

The whole play area will be safety surfaced.  All equipment will fully comply with the European Safety Standard BS EN 1176.

The total project cost will be in the region of £245,000.

Deputy Eddie Noel, Minister for Infrastructure said. “Coronation Park is an important free facility for children to enjoy while being active, which enhances their health and wellbeing. These new replacement toddlers’ play facilities will maintain the high standards of our children’s play areas.”
