Stegosaurus seen in Hoo!

Despite a sprinkling of snow and a chilly breeze, it was good to attend the opening of a new play park in Hoo a couple of weeks ago (on 23 March), along with the Mayor of Medway Cllr Vaughan Hewett.


Located behind Hoo Swimming Pool on Main Road, the dinosaur themed park is called ‘the lost world’ and is equipped with eye-catching play equipment, ranging from dinosaur springer and dinosaur eggs (which are a roundabout and seats), a rope swing, climbing tower and a Stegosaurus sculpture for children to climb.

The colourful playground is apparently the only one like it in the whole of Medway and cost around £120k to create. The funding came from a developer contribution, resulting from the Coes Green housing development in Chattenden.

Many thanks to Sheila Mudge for supplying the photo.
