To Play or not to Play
Recently during the October 2018 half term, as Grove Adventure Playground began to get record numbers of children coming through the doors for free, safe, supervised, external adventure play, someone thought it might be an interesting idea to take a snapshot and record of the usage of the local play facilities available to the children of Loughborough Junction in the immediate area of the playground.
So on Thursday 25th October 2018, a series of photographs of the freely accessible play equipment located in Elam Gardens, Wyck Gardens and Grove Adventure Playground were taken to show the actual usage of the play equipment by children on that day.
The results were really quite interesting.
