King Edwards playground: updated plans

We asked

We shared draft plans for the revamp of King Edwards playground and asked for your views.

You said

The feedback on the plans was positive and included:

  • Asking for a wider range of play equipment in the toddler area.

  • Requesting a sandpit.

  • Requesting a trampoline (to match those installed in neighbouring sites).

  • Requesting a seesaw.

We did

Based on your comments we have revised the plans for King Edwards playground. The changes are:


We agreed with your feedback that trampolines are a popular feature in other parks within the borough so we have included one in the final design.


A raised sandpit has been added and will be located between the Toddler and Junior zone.


The Junior zone will now feature a seesaw. With the addition of the neighbouring sandpit and relocation of the gravity bowl, there is now a wide range of equipment for all to enjoy.

Next steps

We aim to start work in late April / early May 2020. When works are underway the nearest alternative playgrounds will be RAF Chessington Playground and Sir Francis Barker.
