Trent Park

Set in among delightful woodland in Trent Park, Cockfosters a new playground for children aged from 2- 8 years old is now open.

Situated behind the Woodland Café the playground has been provided through a successful award of £37,000 from Enfield’s Residents’ Priority Fund.

The playground equipment is made from high quality wood designed to blend in with the surrounding woodland and is fenced off as a dog-free area.

Tony Halle, Chair of the Friends of Trent Park said “This new equipment is fantastic as it specifically caters for children aged 2 to 8. Trent Park has lots of wonderful things for children and families to do, and this children’s playground will be a good addition to the park for the really young ones.

“The area is specially designed to fit in with the natural surroundings, is dog free, and has some very interesting equipment.

“We would love families to come and see it for themselves.”

Cllr Bambos Charalambous, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture Youth and Localism said, “This is an idyllic area for young children and their families. Although safe with a specially prepared spongy and wood bark ground covering, it is also challenging with intricate climbing frames and swings.

“This thoughtfully planned playground has good parking and the established café, nearby. It is a welcome addition to the park’s excellent facilities and will give great pleasure to many children and families.”
