Improved Maida Vale Playground a Hit with Locals
Local families are having loads of outdoor fun thanks to the City’s latest playground upgrades at Meloway Drive Reserve, Maida Vale.
The new play space has rope ladders, two slides, steppingstones, a climbing wall, a shop front to boost imaginative play and a soft floor ground cover.
In addition, 15 tonnes of locally salvaged rocks and logs were used to create the playground boundary.
CEO Rhonda Hardy said the play space had been earmarked for enhancements in 2020 predominantly via the City’s cash-in-lieu (CIL) fund for Public Open Spaces.
“We asked the community to share their vision for the Reserve and received overwhelmingly positive feedback for more natural materials and a nature-based look and feel,” Ms Hardy said.
“We wanted to ensure both the playground and reserve improvements met the needs of residents so we could create and deliver a welcoming and comfortable environment for all.
“It’s so wonderful to see younger and older children enjoying the playground.”
