Families turned out in force to mark the opening of the new £250,000 park in Upton at the weekend.
Upton and North Elmsall Parish Council commissioned the park, partly paid for through reserves and a loan, to bring the School Street land back into use decades after park equipment was removed.
The land became neglected illegal off-road bikers.
The official opening was due on Saturday, but was put back to Sunday because of the inclement weather. There was a bouncy castle and free sweets for the children.
