Mum with no garden transforms unused parking spaces into amazing kids’ play area for lockdown – and her neighbours help

A MUM has revealed the amazing play area she and her neighbours built – because her kids didn't have a garden to play in.

The clever group transformed their unused parking spaces into a fenced off play park – and it's sure to inspire other parents.


Posting on Facebook's Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group, the woman said lockdown had been "hard" on their kids as they live in flat – and her neighbours were all happy to help.

She wrote: "I live in a flat and lockdown has been hard with 3 children under the age of 3 with no outside space for them to play …..

"So my partner and neighbours all helped to transform a patch of unused parking space and make a safe children's play area.

"All this cost £100. Including materials we managed to get a ton of bark delivered which we used as a safe flooring for them.

"Obviously we had the owners permission who was more than happy for us to use the waste land.

"Only took 2 full days to finish , my neighbours don't have young children it's just mine and I can't thank them enough for all there help".

The work included adding a wooden fence, gate, colourful bunting and bark for the flooring – and the lockdown community spirit delighted people.

Her post has racked up 36,000 likes and 2,300 comments in just 24 hours.


Commenting on the post, people gushed: "Great idea, and very kind of your neighbour- great community spirit".

Others said: "Amazing", "That is so good….great neighbours!" and "Wow good for you!! Such a lovely idea!"
