Tower Hamlets’ Mayor John Biggs has spoken out about how vital play is for children as we emerge from the worst of the pandemic, as a new playground at Millwall Park opens.
A children’s playground has been opened at Millwall Park to help families get back to normal after months of lockdown. It is designed with safety surfacing for youngsters of all abilities, including those with special needs or disabilities. There are also benches and picnic tables where families can have time together and meet the neighbours.
Children were invited to test the play equipment by mayor John Biggs with a day of activities. He said:
“Play is vital for young people’s physical and mental development. It’s important to our recovery from Covid-19 and will make a difference to families.”
The facility is part of Tower Hamlets Council’s £10million kitty set aside to bring the East End’s 60 parks and open spaces up to modern standards.
