JOBS have been created at a new children’s play area, which hopes to become one of the town’s top attractions.

Park Rose Village has seen a large barn converted into a children’s adventure play area, with tunnels, ball pools, games, zip-cords and a race track for pedal-powered tractors - a move which has created four new jobs on the site.

The new facilities – which also include a Wild-West themed town – was the brainchild of James Horsley.

He has brought the attractions to the site on Carnaby Industrial Estate which also includes the Bird of Prey Centre, as well as Park Rose Pottery, a cafe and a factory outlet store.

James began to redevelop the site along with his business partner Trevor Pearce in December last year, with work on the play area completed for it’s opening two weeks ago.

“We are delighted to be open and welcoming children to the site,” said James.

“The new facilites are looking great and along with all the other attractions on the site, we hope to provide a full day out for all the family.

“We have made sure that the play area doesn’t focus on technology, it encourages children to exercise and use their imagination.”

Working alongside the Bird of Prey Centre, a special offer is currently running which will see families who pay £3 for a child to use the adventure play area facilities able to gain entry to the Bird of Prey centre for only £1.

Children can then hold and see a display of the birds of prey, or see all the animals including: meerkats, pigs, goats, and chickens to name a few.

Also on the site, Park Rose Pottery are inviting parents to pop into their cafe for a cup of coffee, while the children take on the challenge of painting a piece of pottery made in the factory.

Kids will have access to all the materials needed to decorate their favourite piece of pottery, which range in price from £5 to £10.
