Wandsworth Parks are managed by Enable Leisure and Culture on behalf of Wandsworth Council

Wandsworth Council are redesigning the existing junior playground in Swaby Gardens and would like your view.

£120,000 of funding has been secured from NCIL (Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy) to refurbish the junior playground and move the toddler play equipment to be part of the new design. There are three designs to choose from, each aimed to improve movement and physical activity among children of all abilities.


Swaby Gardens is a popular play area in Earlsfield for children of 0-14 years. It currently has two separate play areas. The toddlers area, which is located under trees popular with pigeons, is prone to birds mess. The proposal is to relocate the toddler climbing frame and springie adjacent to the junior equipment and to retain the existing wheelchair roundabout. These items have been chosen to be accessible for disabled children whilst providing a challenging play experience for all.
 
Whilst wet pour is a suitable surface under the swings, artificial grass has been proposed under the rest of the play equipment. The purpose of the refurbishment is to:

1. Redesign the layout and join the junior and toddler playgrounds.

2. Provide an accessible playground for children of all abilities.

3. Provide exciting play equipment that has; climbing, swinging, rotating, sliding, balancing and stretching features.

4. Offer a range of challenging, energetic strength building play experiences to help build children’s self confidence and tests the limits of their capabilities.

5. Create a place for social interactions, to help children learn how to negotiate, cooperate, compete and resolve conflicts.
