Spectacular Opening Event at Radnor Park

The opening of three exciting new play areas at Radnor Park, Folkestone, was celebrated in spectacular style with an Opening Event attended by around 700 people!

The project idea originally came from a local resident, who set up a community group in 2015 to raise funds for play equipment for an under-utilised area of the park. Working alongside Shepway District Council, the Group were successful in obtaining nearly £400,000 of funding from a number of local partners which has resulted in a complete transformation of upper Radnor Park including the three new play areas.

Local residents were treated to goodie bags, snack boxes, smoothies, face painting and balloon modelling at the Event and the children loved exploring the new play areas. Mark Grace, Managing Director, who attended the event said “Everything ran smoothly, the weather was kind to us, there were happy children everywhere and it was one of my proudest moments as MD of HAGS.”
