A new play area has opened in Portishead after a housing development was completed.
The playground, in Paper Mill Gardens, was opened to the public on February 11.
It was created by Taylor Wimpey, the developer behind the Paper Mill Gardens development, and features a wide range of play equipment.
It forms part of a landscaped green space and is overlooked by neighbouring homes in a bid to make it a safe place.
Control of the playground has been handed to North Somerset Council, which hopes it will be a focal point for the new homes.
Peter Bryant, the council’s executive member for parks and green spaces, is pleased with how the playground looks.
He said: “I am delighted to see the completion of this play area for children living on or near this development.
“It’s good to see such a well-planned and safe environment within the heart of this scheme and I hope it is enjoyed by all.”
