Opening of the Otter Playground

The new Otter playground is set to open at Ferry Meadows on 4 April. Pupils from St Botolph's CE Primary School, who have been involved in the project for some months, will open the playground at 11am and will be the first children to play on the amazing new play equipment.

A meandering path travels through the playground taking children on a journey of discovery. With water and sand play, cradle swings, an oversized slide, a hollow log, a clambering bridge, a tree den and swinging acorn pods, there is going to be plenty to explore.

The landscape architects, Davies White Ltd, were inspired by the local wildlife and landscape to make the Otter playground as inclusive and fun as possible for all the family, especially young children and toddlers.

The Otter playground will be an exciting place for young children to come and explore. This is the first of a three year programme aimed at improving the play areas in Ferry Meadows. We worked with local schools, our Nene Park volunteers and other groups to understand what our visitors want from the play provision in the Park. Things like the acorn seats are a direct result of this work.
