A family fun and picnic day is being held on Wednesday (August 28) on the re-named Queen Elizabeth II fields on land alongside Shelley Road, Blacon.
The green play space designation is a legacy from the Diamond Jubilee celebrations last year.
The community has been invited to take along a picnic rug and nibbles to join in the celebrations from 3pm-6pm.
Activities include a fancy dress competition with a Royal theme for adults and children, music from Gary at the adventure playground, bouncy castle with small slide, lawn games including croquet, and ice cream.
Sandwiches and face painting are being organised by Blacon Community Trust, and a tea and coffee stand organised by Blacon’s Matthew Henry Church.
Avenue Services staff will be joined on the day by volunteers from the North Blacon Residents Association.
Councillor Carolyn Graham said: “This will be a wonderful opportunity for the community to get together and have some fun while acknowledging the legacy of the Queen Elizabeth II fields and increasing awareness of the importance of our open spaces and natural environment.”
The family event follows on from an Environment Day (10am – 2pm) at Poets Corner where residents will be able to get information and report issues affecting their environment and have the opportunity to take part in a tidy up of the play area.
