Hello all! If you visited Finsbury Park this weekend you might have noticed that the new children playground has opened. It looks great and I’m pleased to see more investments going into the park. However, there seems to be a critical issue with the design.
Swings have been placed in a circle, in the middle of the playground. They swing in an out of where kids run to get to another station. After a few near misses, eventually this poor child got hit in the face today. Having witnessed it, I can tell you that it was nobody’s fault and, especially when the playground is so busy, there is really no way of preventing this from happening other than rethinking the design. I have never seen swings placed anywhere else other than close to the edge of a playground.
I can’t find an obvious place to report this to Haringey, would you guys know what the best way would be?
