The official opening was followed by a family picnic.

The project, which started two years ago, is a small community group lead by two mums Karen Kendall and Sophie Leung with the aim of improving the children’s play area at Mirfield Memorial Park and making it a more exciting place to play.

Earlier, 170 trees from the Woodland Trust along with a willow playhouse and tunnel were planted in the park as part of the project.
