The winning Forty Foot playground design was awarded to play company Kompan; a decision informed by the result of two public consultations held in 2017. Work on-site began in September and the playground officially opened on the first day of October half-term.

Mole Valley District Council worked closely with Woodlands School - whose pupils have a range of disabilities and are regular visitors to the Forty Foot Playground - and Communications specialists Tobii Dynavox, prior to installing visual aid panels at Meadowbank.

The panels at Forty Foot playground feature a range of play-related pictures to act as visual cues and enable children with communication difficulties to better communicate their play needs to their parent, guardian or other children.

Where is Forty Foot Playground?

The playground is located between Fortyfoot Road and the main A24. Parking is available.
