YOUNG people can have a swinging time at a newly opened £50,000 adventure playground.

Deptford Adventure Playground, which has existed for more than 35 years, was closed last year for health and safety reasons.

It has now reopened in New King Street, Deptford, with 10ft and 18ft walkways and new swings.

The reopening was part of the first phase of the site's rebuild. The second phase is due for completion next spring.

Funding has been given by Lewisham Council.

Youth worker Richard Macvicar said: "I'm really pleased with the result.

"The 16 to 19-year-olds are just as keen to play on the structures as the five to eight-year-olds."

The playground is open between 11am and 7pm from Tuesday to Saturday.
