New park play area for North Walsham
North Walsham Play was setup to improve the play parks in and around North Walsham. Their purpose is to raise funds to bring about new and exciting play parks, all of which are inclusive for all children.
They applied to Postcode Local Trust to part fund a new memorial play park. The vision was to provide a state of the art play park accessible to everyone by including play equipment for children in wheelchairs. The new park would promote inclusive play between all children between the ages of 2 and 10.
The project has now been completed with the creation of a 'go to' destination for children and their families in the area. Disabled children living within the town now have a park that they can use and enjoy, whilst at the same time being with their peers and friends. Another indirect benefit of the project is that it has helped to promote healthy lifestyles and re-engage children and adults with the 'great outdoors' and open spaces available on their door steps.
