Palmer Park, Reading
Palmer Park in East Reading provides a welcome solace from a highly populate area of the town. Amid the 49 acres of greenery, the new HAGS playground excites each and every one who passes by.
Designed to be inclusive, the playground has a wide variety of activities for all children and has raised a lot of smiles so far. Both the councillors and the community were incredibly excited watching the playground being built and couldn't wait till opening day.
The £67.5K project was funded by the Council’s Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) which is made up of financial contributions secured from new developments in the borough.
Playground Officer, George Baptiste commented: "Our experience with HAGS was absolutely excellent, from start to finish. Would we recommend HAGS? Simply, Yes!"
