Youngsters have every reason to smile thanks to new play equipment installed by Exeter City Council at Chaucer Grove Play Area.

The recently added play area is designed to serve the new housing development at Chaucer Grove as well as children and families already living nearby. Children can enjoy a new basket swing; an exciting climbing and multi-play structure and a unique ‘climbing tarantula’ which consists of a trampoline within a series of climbing ropes. Cradle seat swings, a play house and some springy animals have also been provided for younger children.

Cllr Keith Owen, Lead councillor for Environment, Health & Wellbeing, said: “I'm  delighted with this new addition. It's another great addition to the range of play facilities we already have across Exeter.

"The new development at Chaucer Grove has brought many new families and children to an area which is already quite densely populated – we feel that it’s really important that new developments like these are properly served with important local amenities like children’s play areas. It is particularly pleasing to know that our Parks & Open Spaces team worked with the local community in selecting the new equipment for the play space.”

The new facilities will be officially opened by Councillor Owen on Friday 14 February at 3pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.

This project was funded via a Section 106 planning contribution from the housing development at Chaucer Grove.
