CHILDREN of all ages are now getting in the swing of things at a new play area.
The recreation site at Hill Top Millennium Green in North Shields was unveiled last week by borough councillor Glynis Barrie.
Coun Barrie said: “The site has been completed after lengthy consultations with the community, and local children and young people have been heavily involved in its design.
“I am sure this will become a very popular play site.”
The official unveiling of the new play area saw pupils from nearby New York Primary School try out its equipment.
The park, partly paid for by Big Lottery Fund cash, features both modern and traditional play equipment including a spinning dish, zipwire and basket swing.
Ryan Muir, eight, said: “I think the park is really good.
“Me and my friends are having loads of fun playing here.”
