Welcome from the Friends of Grange Park, Old Coulsdon
In the summer of 2016, following two years worth of hard fundraising efforts and design planning, we were able to build a brand new playground in Grange Park. The new playground (designed by Proludic Limited) comprises many sustainable materials and is based on a highly bespoke design inspired by our local landscape and heritage.
The new playground is proving to be very popular with the local community of Old Coulsdon and beyond and we are seeing organisations for disabled children bring their children on outings to the playground, which has received the PiPA accreditation as an inclusive playground. Our project received funding from Biffa Award and the London Marathon Charitable Trust, and a large part of the project funds came from the community- our local primary schools, residents' associations, businesses, community organisations and individuals. From a recent consultation, we have found that more children in the community are getting more physical active as a result.
