CHILDREN can unleash their energy at a new 'pocket park' that has opened in an Oxfordshire town.

The park, which is for children under six years of age, opened at the Windmill Centre in Deddington.

The old faded plastic play equipment that was there before, has been replaced by a timber multi-activity structure with its own windmill house.

The natural theme is continued through a willow tunnel, MagPosts, animal shaped springers, and play panels and a native hedge and fragrant shrubs complete the scene.

It was funded primarily by the government’s Pocket Park Plus scheme which gifted £25,000 and was topped up by Deddington Parish Council.

A small grant was also made from the Trust for Oxfordshire Environment.

The Pocket Park sits alongside the Parish Council’s Adventure Playground and Woodland Trail for older children which were opened last year.
