A new eco-park which promises to provide an urban idyll for toddlers and juniors has been opened.

The Biodiverse Playground, based in Westfield Stratford City and opened by Mayor Sir Robin Wales today, will offer young explorers the chance to slide, climb and balance on various toy installations while parents watch from seating areas.

Animal-themed activities will also be available, including dancing balance-beam dragonflies and bouncing springy frogs.

Alyson Hodkinson, manager at the mall, said: “With a focus on family and community experience, we look forward to seeing the park in action, offering exciting and enjoyable facilities for our youngest visitors as well as providing a new hub for the community.”

The park will host half-term plant-potting for children tomorrow and Friday.
