The play park was completed in October last year as part of a development in Milton Keynes’ Western Expansion Area and features a zip wire, slide, climbing frame, see-saw and basketball court.

It was provided by lead developers of the site, Gallagher Estates, and has just now been given into the care of The Parks Trust to manage and maintain the site in the future using funding from the Milton Keynes development Tariff.

Head of landscape, strategy and development at The Parks Trust Phil Bowsher said: "Milton Keynes is fortunate in that as the city grows, so does the green space available for its residents and visitors to enjoy. This play area is the latest example of that."

Gallagher Estates project manager James Mooney said the Whitehouse Park play area was the first of many planned for the Western Expansion Area.
