In what was a badly pitted, scared and bruised playground surface, the Frank Brown Park Playground safety surface has finally been replaced. When they first opened the playground in 2000, it was celebrated and welcomed. Over the years it’s been heavily used, and I for one have been there like a million times.
You may remember how battered the previous safety surface was. Well, that’s gone and a new one has been installed. And it looks beautiful. The material is padded and protects against falls and injury.
The old one looked patched and dingy, but the new one looks cohesive and has that new padded-surface-smell.
They also replaced the fencing around the outside of the playground and replaced the table tops for the picnic benches.
The refurbished park should be open on Friday!
