£55,000 Sky Climber installed in the Upper Playground
Following the highly successful fundraising for the complete revamp of the Lakeside Playground for younger children, the Little Friends of Roundhay park fundraising group switched their efforts to the Upper Playground on Soldiers Field. As it was often very crowded they decided to rais funds for a new large piece of play equipment. With contributions from Leeds City Council, Councillor Jacob Goddart, the Coop nad Veoilla they raised £50,000 to purchase and install the Sky Climber. Standing almost 5 metres high this innovative network of ropes and frames provides challenging and physical play applications for a large number of children at the same time.
