Roding Valley Recreation Ground new playground

Published: 05 September 2023

Loughton Town Council are pleased to report that the official opening of the new Roding Valley Recreation Ground Children’s Playground took place on Friday 1 September 2023.

The playground was opened by Loughton’s Town Mayor, Councillor Mick Stubbings, who was delighted to welcome residents to the new park facilities.

Councillor David Wixley provided both the background and insight into the completion of the project, dismantling both the old playground and building the new, and the contractor, HAGS, explained the design and approach, using the Council’s request for innovation, inclusivity, incorporating residents feedback, and the recycle of materials.

Despite the weather, children were still able to enjoy the new playground, which was soon “buzzing” as they enjoyed the new facility.
