ROMAN PLAYGROUND: New St Albans play area will reflect the history of the city

 Published on: 9th September 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Work is due to start on a children’s playground worth £250,000 at Verulamium Park in St Albans on Monday, September 14.

The attraction will include 30 features and will be divided into zones that reflect the City’s rich history.

The play area was designed by specialist firm Kompan, to include attractions such as a Roman-style basilica.

Councillor Anthony Rowlands, portfolio holder for leisure, heritage and public realm said he is delighted to see the project come to fruition. 

He said: “We were aware for some time that the park was badly in need of a new play area.

“Verulamium at Play helped immensely with an impressive local campaign and fund-raising drive.”

Jessica Chivers from Verulamium at Play said she is happy the play area reflects the Roman Heritage of the city.

She said: “We think the final design does that and we’re really excited about seeing children laughing, smiling and clambering over the new kit.”
