CHILDREN have a new place to play following the opening of a Pre-Historic Park.
The play area, in Broughton Gate, was inspired by the monster shaped space that dominates it.
Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillor Debbie Brock was on hand to officially open the park last week.
The Pre-Historic Park is aiming to be a place for play, discovery, imagination and storytelling.
The friendly monster’s feet and claws form the entrances to the play, seating and classroom areas while planting bed are used to trace its belly.
The park is the first of the open space areas to be finished in the Eastern Expansion Area and was funded by growth area funding and tariff funding from developers via development experts Milton Keynes Partnership – MKP.
Cabinet member for the environment and planning, Councillor Mike Galloway, said: “As Milton Keynes grows, it is vital that we build on its green image to create an even better landscaped city.
“I look forward to seeing the play area continue to flourish.”
Director of MKP Tim Roxburgh, said: “The provision of public open space and play areas is vital for the development of a sustainable community.
“I’m sure that the residents of Broughton Gate will enjoy using this area for years to come.”
