The old playground was none existent but did have a slide with a huge hole in it. One thing that was certainly missing was children and VECO the local electrical company have stepped in with its recycled parts.
Recycled timbers and what appears to be pallet pieces make up the main frame of the playpark. Tyres have been split to make swings from with bolt added to stop them from splitting.
It may not seem much to some but for the community its a big change and improvement. Play park’s are also a good social area where different members of the community that may not mix normally actually get to share an area. Has its good and bad points but generally positive for everyone.
A new group of see-saws had also added a few new features to the park. Simple by design some chopped out old telegraph poles, set in concrete inside a tyre.
A load of old tyres became a running area with a stack of tyres that the kids seem to enjoy rocking back and forth.
An old cable coil has also found a new home as a table. Chairs though I would like to note didn’t seem to get much use so can only assume they are uncomfortable and need a bit of a rework on the idea for future parks.
A big thumbs up from my son Ewe and also the community of Minglanilla town in Cebu, Philippines. Goes to show you can turn nothing into something positive and that waste can have a second life that is beneficial to many.
