THE contract to refurbish the toddler play area in Henley has been awarded.
The town company has agreed a £130,000 deal with Danish company Kompan to transform the facility in Mill Meadows.
The company’s design plan is themed around stories by Hans Christian Andersen with parts labelled “Crocodile Creek”, “Shark Shallows” and “Fairy Tale Island”.
Equipment will include climbing frames, swings, a carousel, seesaw and Concord space net. The floor covering will be painted to look like a river runs through the play area and there is a “royal regatta” rowing boat.
Work is expected to begin by the end of this month and will be finished before the start of Henley Royal Regatta in July.
