Outdoor adult exercise equipment has been installed, along with a ping pong table. The paddling pools have been replaced with a water feature, and a bright play surface features colourful images of puffins, dolphins and hopscotch.

The £210,000 revamp was organised by Amble Town Council, with money from Cllrs Jeff Watson and Robert Arckless, Northumberland County Council and Amble Town Council. A Funday will be held on 30 April to celebrate the new facilities.
