Highbridge's Apex Park play area to get new family swing next week

Highbridge's Apex Park is to get a new family swing as part of an upgrade of its play area.

The swing - the first of this type anywhere within Sedgemoor - is called a 'tango seat'.

District council spokeswoman Claire Faun told that it "promotes interaction and communication between generations during play."

"It allows an adult or older child to swing face-to-face with the toddler which enhances positive interaction whilst of course, having fun!"

"The Green Flag award winning park also has a basket swing which allows multiple people to swing together."

"There are also two cradle swings for younger users as well as a zip wire for those looking for something more exhilarating."

The new seat, costing £500, has been funded from Sedgemoor’s Parks Development budget. To see a video featuring the new swing, click here.
