The park in Wooton near Bedford took just under 18 months to build and opened this weekend.

It cost more than a hundred thousand pounds but went ahead after the 11 year olds made a presentation at a parish meeting and handed over a 700 signature petition.

The young people were involved in the management of the project at every stage, including raising the funds needed to build it.
