My wife, child and I moved to Witney a year ago, and how fortunate we felt to have a childrens park in the field behind our house.

Then we found out about a 3 year project to fund a bigger, better park to replace the existing one.  The second we saw the plans for the new ‘Splash Park‘ we jumped onboard to contribute finanically, and to offer a photographic record throughout its construction.

Claire Swan (Facilities Manager, Witney Council) has been the main person to thank for seeing the whole idea from start to finish (funding facebook page here), and she’s been a pleasure to photograph for.  Your vision has far exceeded what Witney probably ever imagined, Claire.  On its first public day (today), I can see approx 150 children playing in and enjoying the park to the max.

So here are a whole series of images that I’ve taken over the last few weeks; from the initial cement-pouring and soil-digging, through to the park’s features being added, and finally to the official launch day (inc. an opening speech by Witney’s Mayor, as well as a cheque for £24,700.95 awarded to the council):
