A new play area has been built at the Talkin Tarn Country Park in Brampton, Cumbria.

Aimed at children up to 12 years old, the play area includes a large sand pit, a slide and a wooden dinghy. It has been constructed from natural materials and is designed to "harmonise with the natural environment of Talkin Tarn."

The area's equipment has been designed to allow children to play according to their abilities, helping them develop their co-ordination, balance and confidence.
