Delighted children will now be able to make the most of the summer months thanks to a makeover.
Twelve students from Newham joined skilled tradesmen at Arc In The Park playground in Hermit Road, Newham to give the centre a new lease of life.
Work included installing a new disabled shower and toilet and fire alarm.
The project was led by Vinci Facilities who provided their services for free.
Vinci business and community investment manager, Josephine O’Connor, said: “The place will have a new lease of life for the spring.
