Youngsters have been trying out a playground in Kirby Cross that has been reopened following a £94,000 refurbishment.
The play area in Halstead Road has seen a large fort structure with three slides installed, along with a rope bridge, climbing wall, a big rope swing and slide and climbing frame.
Six new pieces of equipment have been installed to make the playground more accessible.
The cash for the revamp came from section 106 funding, which is paid by housing developers to support community projects near their properties.
Students from the nearby Kirby Primary Academy were invited to be the first to try out the new equipment on Friday.
