Oaklands play area update

Rastrick Plays Better (RPB) has worked with local residents and children to improve play areas in Rastrick.  They were awarded £40,000 in the first launch of Voice your Choice.  This in turn enabled the group to access further funding of £40,000 plus.  The first site at Oaklands was completed in July 2016.

The play area now boasts a brand new toddler area, basket swing, monkey bars and climbing poles with parents being able to make use of the new seating area.

Children from the nearby school were invited to come up with ideas for what they would like to see in the recreation ground

 

 

 

 

 

 

The project was funded by Rastrick Big Local, Calderdale Council and the Community fundraising group “Your Back Yard”.  It was overseen by members of the Community who have formed Rastrick Plays Better, along with other local stakeholders.

The work at Oaklands is part of a programme of improvements to play areas around Rastrick with the aim being to make three further parks more exciting for the children to enjoy!
