Peckham Rye Adventure Playground Opening Tomorrow (Tues 6 April)

I'd heard at the last Friends of Peckham Rye Park meeting that the Adventure Playground on Peckham Rye would be opening at Easter. Walking past over the last few days it's been very much closed and it's clear work still needs to be done.

However, Gavin and I noticed a sign up today giving opening times for the next week or so. I understand that further work is still needed but the playground will now be open on the following dates and times:
Tues 6 April 11.00am - 5.00pm
Weds 7 April 11.00am - 5.00pm
Thurs 8 April 11.00am - 5.00pm
Fri 9 April 11.00am - 5.00pm
Mon 12 April 11.00am - 5.00pm
Tues 13 April 11.00am - 5.00pm
Weds 14 April 11.00am - 5.00pm
Thurs 15 April 11.00am - 5.00pm
Fri 16 April 11.00am - 5.00pm

I know that lots of local parents, including Renata, have chased the council about the playground many times over the last year or so. I'm glad that progress is now being made but it does seem painfully slow. The Lib Dems' do have a terrible record on delivering projects. We are very concerned that in addition to the delays to the playground, the redevelopment plans for the One O'Clock Club and new sports facilities on the Rye are under threat because of their refusal to fund these urgently needed projects. I'll give a fuller update on our concerns later this week.
