Children’s playground to be built at Fambridge Yacht Haven
New kids play area at River Crouch marina
The marina group, Yacht Havens has announced that a new adventure play park is to be built at its Fambridge Yacht Haven site on the River Crouch in Essex. The playground, which will be opened next spring, will include a range of equipment and apparatus for children aged 3-16. As expected, there is a nautical theme to the new park with children able to scale a ship and perch in a crow’s nest.
Built by school playground design firm Schoolscapes Ltd, the new playground will overlook the River Crouch and the farmland around Fambridge Yacht Haven, next to the West Wick Tearoom.
Marina manager, Danyal Adams, said the new construction is designed to widen the appeal of the marina and the village “We want to make Fambridge Yacht Haven a great destination for boaters and visitors of all generations. We already have a wide range of facilities here including bike hire, a café and the Ferry Boat Inn pub, but we want to attract the younger generation to start enjoying the marina surroundings."
Fambridge Yacht Haven has 220 berths for yachts up to 18m, with boatyard services, bike hire, parking boat sales and a restaurant. The marina is set in the village of North Fambridge on the River Crouch.
Fambridge Yacht Haven is part of the Yacht Havens marina group which was established in 1972 and has 9 locations around the UK and the Netherlands. See www.yachthavens.com for more details.
