New equipment has been installed on land at the entrance to Newsham Farm Estate and the area was opened by the Mayor of Blyth, Cllr John Potts.
The play area was installed following requests from residents of Newsham Farm Estate and Northumberland County Councillor Deidre Campbell.
It features a little mermaid and tinderbox climbing frame with slide, modular climbing structure, birds nest and cradle swings and small springers.
The project was funded by securing money raised through the Section 106 Housing Developers' Fund, which is held by Northumberland County Council to help develop new sports and play opportunities.
Blyth Town Council worked closely with their preferred supplier, KOMPAN, who carried out a consultation with residents and pupils from Newsham Primary School on behalf of the council and the company designed the play area very much with the school in mind.
Not only is the play area benefiting families, but KOMPAN has also provided the the school with teaching and learning materials to help the teachers use the play equipment in line with curriculum requirements.
