AN INFORMAL space where children can develop their imagination through play could be built in Cambourne if planners give it the go-ahead.

The proposed play area will be located within Cambourne's Fen Greenway, a new pedestrian and cycle route running through a wetland area inspired by the Fenland character of Cambridgeshire.

A spokesman for lanscape architects Randall Thorp, which is working on the plans, said: "The play area will continue the theme of Fenland wetland with play equipment normally found in play areas. This provides a great opportunity for children to play creatively in an interesting environment."

It is intended that the play area will have an abandoned boat structure as its centrepiece on a raised area surrounded by logs and buried rocks.
