Youngsters flocking to new Shepley adventure playground
Mar 6 2010 by Nick Lavigueur, Hudd Sat
A FREE adventure playground is already pulling in the youngsters.
More than 350 youngsters have already flocked to the new £100,000 facility at Cliffe House in Shepley since it opened on January 22.
The woodland play area is aimed at eight to 13-year-olds, although other children are allowed.
It is staffed by Kirklees Young People’s Service and is currently only open on Saturdays.
But council workers told councillors at Denby Dale Area Committee they hoped to offer Friday evening sessions as the weather improved and the nights got lighter.
Councillors are also considering offering a minibus service to help ferry kids to and from the playground.
