Joy for families as seesaw re-opens at Worcester park

Worcester Editorial 22nd Apr, 2024   0

WORCESTER families will once again be able to enjoy a beloved seesaw at Lansdowne Park after it was brought back to life following years out of action.

Previously surrounded by Heras fencing, the metal seesaw has been repaired and is now ready for youngsters and their families to enjoy.

After the out-of-use play equipment was raised by members of the community, Arboretum councillors Karen Lewing and Hannah Cooper stepped in to ensure its return.

Coun Lewing said: “We heard feedback from residents about the seesaw being out of use for a long time, and we knew families would be eager to see it back in action.

“We’re delighted to see the repairs completed and the happy faces of children enjoying the seesaw again.”

Coun Cooper added: “Playgrounds are vital community spaces, and we are committed to ensuring they are safe and accessible for all residents.

“The return of the seesaw is a positive step towards achieving this goal.”
