Tong Garden Centre’s adventure playground Grass Hoppers has been nominated in the Child Friendly Leeds awards.
The adventure playground, which opened last year as part of a series of improvements, was nominated in the ‘best place for children and young people in Leeds’ category.
The awards evening was attended by a number of guests, including Nadiya Hussain from the Great British Bake Off, Sir Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, and Jamie Jones-Buchanan from Leeds Rhinos.
Tong’s marketing manager, Jo Dales said: “The team at Tong works really hard to deliver a family-friendly play experience for all of our visitors so it’s really rewarding that their efforts have been acknowledged with this nomination.”
According to Tong, the success of the playground means that plans are afoot to make it even bigger in 2016.
Child Friendly Leeds is a Leeds City Council initiative designed to put children and young people at the heart of the community.
