Playground make-over

The playground on the edge of Royal Park Gate has been given a make-over by Kingston Council. This includes new equipment, new safe surfaces and a map of the Thames.

There is more equipment than before and this smaller climbing frame is new.

In addition to the map of the river there is a curious signpost that serves no practicable purpose and is not that decorative either. I presume that the London and Richmond signs are pointing the wrong way for the same reason that Richmond had lost its "m". Also I know that this is technically in Kingston but a sign to Kingston pointing upstream to the town centre would mean more to children than one to Hampton Court, unless that is meant as a reminder that there is a far better playground to be found there.
