The children's climbing frame was removed from the Drovers' Way playground today, following an assessment by Cardiff Council that it was no longer safe to use. The frame's footings had rusted away, due to constant flooding of the play area.
Radyr and Morganstown Community council has been working hard with Cardiff Council, the Parc Radyr Management Committee and Redrow Homes to prepare for the installation of new equipment. Funding is in place to fill around three-quarters of the play area - with further funds to be sought to fill the remaining area. (Full story here).
However, before any new equipment is installed, work will need to be done to prevent mud and water flooding onto the site (and ruining the new equipment). Redrow Homes are working closely with Cardiff Council to agree on the necessary works. We will continue to press them to do this as quickly as possible, so that this important play area is once again a great place for young children to play and learn.
