It was smiles all round this holiday weekend as the new Chalkhill Park was opened to the public.

The long awaited park in Chalkhill Road welcomed its first visitors last Friday a month ahead of its official opening ceremony.

The park was given planning permission in 2010 and includes a play area as well as outdoor gym equipment, a performance area and a sculpture garden.

Cllr Michael Pavey, for the Barnhill ward, said: “I’m so pleased that the beautiful new Chalkhill Park is open. Seeing all the kids having fun in the sunshine made my Bank Holiday. What a great way to kick off the summer.”
