Gobions play area ready to use
Information and pictures by Bob Horrocks
New play equipment has been installed in Gobions Open Space ahead of schedule and under budget.
The work, carried out on behalf of North Mymms Parish Council, cost £64 short of the £21k budget for the project.
The design was approved by children at Brookmans Park primary school.
Safety surfacing has been laid where it was thought to be necessary.
Work still be carried out includes refurbishing the swings and, in response to requests, cutting the hedge in order to offer improved visibility of the play area. NMPC says that a mound of excess earth will be removed soon.
The parish council has two more play areas at Dellsome Lane and Hawkshead Road.
