Parents and kids had their say on the design of a new adventure playground in a popular park.
Three ideas for a playground in Kilburn Grange Park were drawn up by designers and were on display at a public meeting at West Hampstead Women's Centre last week.
It's aimed at 8 to 13 year olds who have fewer play facilities compared to younger and older age groups.
The playground will have an outdoor area which will be physically challenging, with a mix of materials such as sand and water, space for sports and physical activities and a natural environment shaped by the children.

Its indoor area will include a cooking area, space for arts, crafts, dressing up and messy play, space to enjoy quiet activities such as reading, and will also have toilets and washing facilities.
Building work is expected to start at the end of 2009 with the adventure playground open by April 2010.
