1995 by Richard Broderick and Graham Robinson for Northern Freeform. Off Howdon Road at the north end of the Dene. A mock playground with colourful concrete sculptures of cars, buses and a castle set within a wooden fence. The floorscape is set with mosaics. At the south end there is a mound with a silver chimney-like column with a fibreglass figure of a child on top, which points out to sea between the two piers.
