Children from Riverley Primary School in Park Road, Leyton, and St Joseph’s Junior School in Vicarage Road, Leyton, were among the first to try out a huge wooden pirate ship which has been installed in nearby Jubilee Park.

The 20m vessel can hold 100 youngsters and includes slides, climbing nets, ladders and exercise bars for children aged three and up.

The new equipment is part of £2m invested in the 34-acre park’s recent transformation, which will soon include a new cafe and a woodland footpath alongside Orient Way.

They didn't think through the play areas at all in the beginning and got architects to build 'concept' play areas that didn't work.They could have saved us money by consulting a play association first. Even so they have tried to correct this and generally seem to be doing a good thing with Jubilee Park (terrible name though!) Its great that Ive farm lane playing fields now seems to be opening up, I have never seen a London council open up a green space once its been fenced off .
