The newly improved play area at Snaprails Park was opened to the public on Monday 26 September, after being closed for refurbishment.

Members of the community and excited children from Uplands Primary School and Nursery, wasted no time in trying out the new play features. These include a dolly seat, spinners and a new set of swings.

The play area is suitable for children aged between 4 and 14 years. The improvements were needed to refresh the existing facilities and improve its accessibility for families.

The work was carried out by contractor HAGs, on behalf of Bracknell Forest Council.

Cllr John Harrison, executive member for culture, delivery and public protection, said:

“It was great to see our young residents trying out the new playground facilities for the first time. I think it’s safe to say that everyone had fun!

“The Snaprails play area was due for an upgrade, and the improvements we’ve undertaken have given it a new lease of life.

“We thank residents who waited patiently for the upgrades to the park. The reward will be that residents will be able to now enjoy new and improved facilities for many years to come!”


Present at the event were:

  • children and staff from Uplands Primary School and Nursery
  • Councillor John Harrison
  • Councillor Michael Brossard
  • Councillor Gaby Kennedy
  • Parks and Countryside rangers: Alan Wilson and Alex Smith
