The London Adventure Playground of the Year Awards – which are run by the charity London Play – recognise adventure playgrounds that are either particularly innovative, welcoming for children, able to offer a wide variety of activities, or capable of offering particularly adventurous activities.
Four awards will be given out at the award ceremony, which will take place in East Finchley on 30 October.
The "Innovation Award" recognises the playground with the most creative or remarkable features or equipment, while the "Openness Award" recognises the playground which "goes the extra mile to be a friendly place" for all local children.
Meanwhile, the "Variety Award" recognises the adventure playground offering the broadest range of things to do, and the "Best Adventurous Play in a School" award is given to the school that offers the most adventurous play opportunities to its pupils.
There will also be a "London Adventure Playground of the Year Award" for the overall winner.
