Work on a major revamp of the Sandringham Country Park play area has taken a big step forward.

The project, to be completed in stages, will see the play area extended and improved, with highlights including a toddler area and tree-top decks. 

Some of the new wooden structures are being based on local landmarks and this week saw the installation of a tube slide on an 8m water play tower inspired by Appleton Water Tower.

The Sandringham Estate posted a time-lapse video of the tower being built earlier this month and said the project was well underway.
