Cornwallis Adventure Playground, run by Awesome, capped off a fantastic 2019 by winning Playfinder’s December Outstanding Facility Award.

Cornwallis Adventure Playground Venue Award

December’s award went to one of Islington’s best loved Sports pitch, where there is a multi-sports pitch that features football goals. Alongside the sporting facilities there is a single storey log cabin which has a main hall, arts and crafts room, kitchen and play structure.

Alongside the sporting facilities, there is an Adventure Playground with a single storey wooden cabin and outdoor play structures.

The final award for 2019, which is determined by Playfinder users, is based on pitch quality, venue amenities and customer experience.

Playfinder is a tech platform with a mission of making it easier for everyone to play sports, and increase the utilisation of venues as a result. Before last year was out Playfinder raised £733,000 through a crowdfunding campaign and this money will be used to bring the service to more UK cities during 2020.

Jamie Foale, Co-Founder of Playfinder, commented: “Cornwallis Adventure Playground is a hive of activity for Islington’s locals and the pitch here is a big reason for that. Awesome do a wonderful job providing facilities for the community which offer something for everyone.”

Christina Henry, Play coordinator at Cornwall Adventure Playground said, “Cornwallis is an amazing place for Islington local families and having the pitch to compliment it has been great. Awesome CIC have had the wonderful opportunity of providing a space for the community to come and engage in sports activities. We at Cornwallis don’t just use it for sports but use it for all types of activities as its a space for the children to explore, use their imagination and create all types of games. We would like to thank Playfinder for their support and the recognition of December’s outstanding facility award.”.
