 The natural play area was opened in May 2010 following its development from a previously derelict area of land.  Groundwork Hertfordshire designed the play area following community consultation with local young people.  Other groups involved included St Albans City and District Council, Harpenden Town Council, Batford Community Action Group, The Harpenden Trust, County Cllr Bernard Lloyd’s Locality Budget, Hertfordshire Police Authority, London Luton Airport Community Trust Fund and RWE Npower Renewables
