Adventure Playgrounds in the Community – Garston

Play England has produced this video of Garston Adventure Playground near Liverpool (know as the ‘Venny’ to local children) to illlustrate the benefits of staffed play provision working at the heart of a community.

This eight-minute video, made in March 2011, features interviews with staff, children, parents, volunteers and a local councillor.

This video was produced by Mark Lister, Senior Programme Development Officer at Play England.
