The new Otter Playground in Ferry Meadows Country Park in Peterborough has scooped a top award.

The playground was praised at the British Institute of Landscape Industries awards ceremony in London.

The playground received the Principal Award in the BALI Registered Contractors and Registered Designers Joint Submission category and was also a winner in the ‘Community and Schools Development’ category.

Otter Playground, a natural wooden play area, is located next to the Visitor Centre and Ferry Meadows Café.

The judges commented: “This impressive and thoroughly successful play scheme is the result of a robust design that has considered the needs of children and the local community.

“The timber play equipment workmanship is first class.”

Teresa Wood, head of visitor services for Nene Park Trust, said: “The trust has worked closely with landscape architects and are pleased how the Otter Playground is in keeping with the park landscape.

“This award brings together water and sand play as well as many other elements of enjoyable play.”
