Brilliant BBC Broadcaster Officially Opens the Burngreaver Zipwire

One of the UK’s best playgrounds has just secured a new piece of play equipment. The new Dragon Zipwire is the latest installation at Sheffield’s award winning Pitsmoor Adventure Playground and BBC Radio Sheffield’s Paulette Edwards was on hand to do the honours as she cut the ribbon and joined in an afternoon of play and fun. The children that use the facility requested a zip-wire after ongoing consultation identified that they wanted additional play challenges and Steve Pool a local resident and community artist led on the work supported by Patrick Amber and local families.

Aliya aged 10 who uses the playground said ” Its really smooth and goes fast I like it, but my friend likes the Pirate ship better.”
Patrick Meleady playground manager said “Throughout the half term holidays a significant number of children have tested out the dragon and they all seem to like the challenge that it presents.”
 
Jonathan Morris from Sheffield Green Spaces Forum popped into the playground to experience the ride and said “this is a fantastic addition to an already jam packed  playground, this will benefit the playground users and the community”
