Dozens of children, mums, dads and grandparents attended the official opening of the newly refurbished play area in Bedmond.

The refurbished play area has got something for everyone with even more inclusive and exciting play equipment for children aged 2 -1 4 years old to enjoy. The new play equipment includes a play tower, climbing net, zip wire, basket swing, flying saucers, toddler and junior swings.  Located next to Bedmond Village Primary School, it is ideal for a playtime before or after school.

The Chairman of Three Rivers District Council, Diane Barber and The Chairman of Abbots Langley Parish Council, Elizabeth Burns conducted a joint official opening ceremony on 15 June, to celebrate the play area designed by Children's Playground Company Limited and project managed by Frankham Consultancy Group.

Chairman of Three Rivers District Council said “I would like to extend thanks to Bedmond Village Primary School and local residents for taking part in the consultation about the type of equipment you wanted to see in Bedmond play area. We’ve included the things that they like to play on and some inclusive equipment for children who require additional assistance to play. Thanks also go to Abbots Langley Parish Council Officers and Members for working in partnership with Three Rivers District Council to finish this fantastic play area for the local community. Three Rivers District Council remains committed to installing high quality, challenging and inclusive play environments for children and young people, as can be seen at the recently opened Manor House  play area and here at the Bedmond play area. ”

Chairman of the Parish Council, Elizabeth Burns said “Abbots Langley Parish Council is really pleased that the newly refurbished play area is being used so much by the local community residents and with the range of equipment on offer for children and young people in the parish.”

A resident said “My children love coming here before and after school, it’s great” Another resident said “It’s lovely to see the new play equipment, the play area was looking a bit tired before.”

Further improvements are being worked on to develop the recreational and arts/cultural facilities in Abbots Langley.
