Carterhatch Infants School in Enfield wins award for best school adventure playground in London
A primary school has won an award for having the best adventure playground out of all schools in London.
Carterhatch Infants School in Enfield Wash was recognised on Tuesday by charity London Play which campaigns to improve play spaces in London.
The play area in Carterhatch Lane was praised for its sandpit, swings, wooden climbing frame, as well as a pond to give children a chance to explore wildlife.
The school was presented with the award during a ceremony in the Pheonix Cinema in Finchley.
Hackney Marsh Adventure Playground in Hackney won an award for having the most innovative playground and the Shakespeare Walk Adventure Playground in Hackney won for the most open playground.
The award for the playground with the most variety was given to the Triangle Adventure Playground in Lambeth.
Chair of London Play Melian Mansfield said: “These are safe havens, often located in relatively deprived parts of London, where children can challenge themselves, be active, make friends and have new experiences."
