A LONG-standing Rhyl eyesore which has been transformed into a £350,000 community playground has been officially unveiled.
Hundreds of thousands of pounds have been spent to revive the Cut, which has been used as a dumping ground for years. It has now been transformed into a community fishing pool, access for walkers and a mountain bike track.
Last week members of the public, schoolchildren and community leaders gathered for the official opening of the project which included the unveiling of a plaque.
Natural Resources Wales worked alongside the Welsh Government, Denbighshire Council’s Countryside Services, WREN, Scottish Power and local community groups.
In order to create the fishing area 40,000 tonnes of material was excavated from the Cut’s flood alleviation channel and was then used to create the 3km long mountain bike course.
