A playground will be re-opened next week after a £25,000 refurbishment.

The play area at Barkingside Recreation Ground, in Mossford Green, Barkingside, will re-open to the public on Tuesday.

The park was given protected status in 2012 and the playground is the last feature benefitting from investment and refurbishment with the replacement of play equipment.

The equipment is targeted at all age groups.

Brian Spinks, chairman of Parks and Open Spaces Sub Committee said: "The joint project between greatly embellishes the importance of recreational space in Redbridge.”
