The Mayor of Woking opens new play area in Kingsmoor Park

Park Launch-7797The Mayor of Woking, Councillor Anne Murray, officially opened a brand new children’s play area in the Kingsmoor Park development on Friday 22nd July.

Woking Borough Council, Kier Partnership Homes and Thames Valley Housing have formed a partnership to deliver 224 homes for social rent within the Westfield area of Woking. The play area is part of the development.

The event was attended by Kingsmoor Park residents as well as representatives from Woking Borough Council, Kier and TVH. The Mayor was introduced by John Baldwin, Thames Valley Housing’s Director of Housing, before cutting the ribbon and declaring the play area open to the public.

The play area was designed and built with the goal of creating a sustainable community which celebrates the natural environment and landscape of the development in which it is located. The site features several attractions such as a crooked house, zip wire, see saw, swings and more. It is also positioned next to a farm, providing a countryside setting within an urban environment, and includes a separate play area for toddlers.

The Mayor of Woking, Councillor Anne Murray said: “I was delighted to open this brand new play area in Kingsmoor Park. It’s a fantastic addition to this new development and I hope that the facilities will be enjoyed by those in the local community for years to come.”

Karen Paylor, Woking PFI Project Manager at Thames Valley Housing said: “It was fantastic to see so many local people in attendance last Friday. The play area is a resource which can be enjoyed by everyone and our goal with this project is to bring the new and existing community together.”
