The playground has been rebuilt after a devastating arson attack.

Doncaster Mayor Ros Jones then found the rest of the money from council reserve funding to make up the total sum of around £140,000.

Children were said to have taken part in the consultation to tell council officers in charge of submitting the plans what they wanted to see included.

Some of the items planned to be installed include new swings, climbing frames, slides, roundabouts, seesaws and much more.
