RIPON children have celebrated the opening of a new play area in the city’s Spa Park.

The rebuilt facilities were opened by twins Bethany and Emily Hamby of 5th Ripon Guides helped by Mayor Coun Mick Stanley at a family fun day on Friday, June 3.

The playground has recently undergone a £75,000 refurbishment funded by Harrogate Borough Council and the government’s playbuilder scheme.

Local children had the chance to decide on the new facilities and the play area now boasts a nest swing for all ages, new junior swings, a wooden climbing frame with nets and ropes, talking flowers, a traversing wall and a large fort and slide.
