Youngsters took to the skies in a new tree house, which was officially opened on Wednesday (February 19).

Children played among the branches on the new piece of equipment at Redlees Play Centre, in Isleworth.

The wheelchair-accessible tree house, paid for by Hounslow Council's short breaks service, marks the final stage in the site's redevelopment.

The under-fives play centre for children of all abilities already boasts a log cabin with accessible changing facilities, soft play area, accessible play equipment, a sensory room and a café area.

 

Councillor Lily Bath, cabinet member for children's services, said: "The investment in the play centre over the last few years has made a real difference to the lives of local disabled children and their families.

"The new facilities have been developed with parents to make sure they meet the needs of local children, and I hope they’re as pleased with the results as we are."

The play centre, in Worton Road, is open every afternoon from 1pm to 4pm (3pm on Fridays) and offers different activities every day.

The council's short breaks service, which uses Redlees, organises fun events for children with disabilities to give their carers time off. For more information, visit  www.hounslow.gov.uk/short_breaks_disabled_children
