Fun in the sun at city’s newest play area

Mon 15 Aug 2011

Visitors were treated to a Falconry Display and sizzling Samba music as part of the festivities, and the herd of giant wooden animals, reflective of the real-life creatures to be found at the site, found plenty of new friends among the children who had come to meet them.

Brooklands, part of the Eastern Expansion,  is set in a 360 acre site and will eventually include 2, 500 homes, schools, shops and offices, all surrounded by landscaped areas, sports facilities and countryside walks.  The green spaces included in the development are a source of great pride to the man in charge, Places for People Project Director, Simon Elcock.

He says, “Having somewhere safe and exciting for children to play is one of the things which make a development like this into a place where people are happy to live.  The Ridge has been constructed to block out the sound from the motorway and has become a real amenity where residents and visitors can walk and enjoy the views of Brooklands. Along with the park and the meadow we hope residents will have a real sense of being in the countryside inside the city.” 

The Brooklands marketing suite and show homes are open seven days a week from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm.
