Park play area improvements

Work has now been completed on the improvements to the Darley Park children's play area. For younger children there is a new timber platform and slide, and the existing swings will be repainted and a soft rubber surfacing installed. For older children there is a new tyre swing, and a trim trail including balance beams, stepping stones and hanging rope walk, all situated on the other side of the flood bank. However, the project has already drawn criticism from mothers of younger children who think that the new hexagonal timber platform, which gives access to the new slide, is too dangerous for younger children to use.

What do you think? Please send your comments to David Ling Chairman of Darley Abbey Society at or post them on our facebook wall or tweet them.
