A £59,000 play area designed by children is to be unveiled in Bargate.

The play area on Bargate Road has been given a facelift after feedback from youngsters revealed it needed a boost.

Now it has been updated with football goals, a zip wire, climbing walls and more swing-related equipment.

The official opening will take place tomorrow at 10am with children from the nearby Herbert Strutt School. The money for the project has come from Amber Valley Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council.
