At the end of September, local housebuilder Barratt David Wilson Homes North Thames welcomed Kingsbrook Parish Council, children from Kingsbrook View Primary Academy, and the Aylesbury Town Council Mayor to officially mark the opening of the ‘Railway Park’ at the Kingsbrook development, just outside of Aylesbury.

On the day, senior representatives from Barratt David Wilson Homes met with the guests to officially mark the unveiling of the park at the development.

Children and teachers from Kingsbrook View Primary Academy, which is situated on site, also came along to mark the event, and to test out the new amenities in the park, including swings, a slide and a climbing frame.

The day also was an opportunity for guests to see the progress which has been made thus far and discuss the future plans for the development, alongside enjoying free coffee and cakes.

The visit to the park was also an excellent opportunity for guests to see the sustainable elements installed at the parks, bolstering Kingsbrook’s wider commitment to wildlife. This included DIY bird homes, painted by local children and pupils at Kingsbrook View Primary Academy, which included QR codes which takes viewers to a page on the RSPB website, giving instructions on how to make these feeders from recycled materials residents would have laying around the house.

Cllr James Ingall, Chair of Kingsbrook Parish Council, comments: “After seeing the Railway Park go from a patch of soil to a fully equipped play park has been a magnificent experience and I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been involved with delivering the first phase.

"It is always lovely to give something back to the thriving Kingsbrook community and from what I can see, the local children have certainly put their stamp on the park and the birds are enjoying the feeders.”
