A project to renovate and enhance the play area at a Hitchin common is now complete – with the facility set to open tomorrow morning.

The playground at Walsworth Common – open from 9am – will feature new landscapes and equipment including several types of swings for different age ranges, a fenced toddler area and a zip wire.

The North Herts District Councillor executive member for leisure, Jane Gray, said: “The completion of the renovations is really good news. Having consulted and taken on board ideas from local young people and their parents, the end result is something the local community really want.

“It’s the perfect time of the year for children to get outside and enjoy some active fun so please go along and support the new equipment.”
