UPDATE: 1 JUNE 2022
Due to wet weather conditions during the installation and with the persisting rain, some of the vinyls of the new Scribble and Wriggle temporary play area in front of Walton Library have started to peel. The children’s safety is of utmost importance and we will do everything we can to make sure this play space remains safe to use. We will remove all elements that have been damaged to avoid any trip hazards and falls. The manufacturers are aware and looking at all possible options to secure the play area. We might make the decision to close it off at short notice until safety adjustments have been made. We understand this will be a disappointment for visitors and their family and we would like to apologise for the inconvenience. Please be assured that are working hard to rectify the issue.

A brand new regal themed pavement playground has arrived in Walton-on-Thames for summer 2022.
Children, of all ages, can hop, wiggle, jiggle, dance, skip and run off steam on the illustrated playground which encourages families to be active together using play and creativity!
Officially opened on 31 May, in time for half-term and the Platinum Jubilee 4-day weekend, the playground will be located outside Walton Library on the Hepworth Way Concourse of The Heart Shopping Centre for the duration of the summer.
This project has been supported and funded by Elmbridge Borough Council, The Arts Partnership Surrey and us, the Walton Business Improvement District (LoveWalton). Read the full press release here.
