1 .Good morning.
2 .I'm very pleased to have this opportunity to say a little about two exciting new developments in the city: the Brackenside Open-Air Swimming Pool and the children's Adventure Playground in Central Park.
我很高兴有这个机会说一些关于城市中的 两个令人振奋的新发展：Brackenside露天泳池和儿 童游乐园的中央公园。
3 .As many of you may know, the idea for these initiatives came from you, the public, in the extensive consultation exercise which the City Council conducted last year.
正如你们许多人可能都知道 的一样，这些创意的理念都来自你们和公众，还有在市 议会去年进行了广泛的谘询。
4 .And they have been realised using money from the SWRDC - the South West Regional Development Commission.
1 .First of all, Brackenside Pool.
2 .As many of the older members of the audience will remember, there used to be a wonderful open-air pool on the sea front 30 years ago but it had to close when it was judged to be unsafe.
许多老年成员可能记得，曾 经30年前，在海前面有一个很好的露天泳池，但是由 于被认为是不安全的，所以不得不关闭掉。
3 .For the design of this new heated pool, we were very happy to secure the talents of internationally renowned architect Ellen Wendon, who has managed to combine a charming 1930s design, which fits in so well with many of the other buildings in the area, with up to the minute features such as a recycling system the only one of its kind in the world - which enables seawater to be used in the pool.
对于这个 新的温水游泳池的设计，我们非常高兴能获得国际 知名建筑师Ellen Wendon，他成功地结合了非常迷 人的20世纪30年代的设计，这也很好的融入了该地 区的其他建筑物，也有最新的特点，比如循环系统一 也是唯一的可以使泳池中的汗水再次被利用。
1 .Now, there has been quite a bit of discussion in the local press about whether there would be enough room for the number of visitors we're hoping to attract, but the design is deceptive and there have been rigorous checks about capacity.
2 .Also, just in case you were wondering, we're on schedule for a June 15th opening date and well within budget: a testimony to the excellent work of local contractors Hickman's.
1 .We hope that as many people as possible will be there on June 15th.
2 .We have engaged award- winning actress Coral White to declare the pool open and there'll be drinks and snacks available at the pool side.
3 .There'll also be a competition for the public to decide on the sculpture we plan to have at the entrance: you will decide which famous historical figure from the city we should have.
1 .And now, moving on to the Central Park Playground, which we're pleased to announce has just won the Douglas Award for safety: the news came through only last week.
2 .The unique design is based on the concept of the Global Village, with the playground being divided into six areas showing different parts of the world each with a representative feature.
3 .For example, there is a section on Asia, and this is represented by rides and equipment in the shape of snakes, orang utans, tigers and so on fauna native to the forests of the region.
1 .Moving south to the Antarctic we couldn't run to an ice rink I'm afraid but opted instead for climbing blocks in the shape of mountains I thought they could have had slides for the glaciers but the designers did want to avoid being too literal! Then on to South America and here the theme is El Dorado games replicating the search for mines full of precious stones.
2 .And then moving up to North America, here there was considerable debate I know the contribution of cinema and jazz was considered but the designers finally opted for rockets and the International Space Station.
1 .Eastwards to Europe then, and perhaps the most traditional choice of all the areas: medieval castles and other fortifications.
2 .Then last, but not least, moving south to Africa and a whole set of wonderful mosaics and trails to represent the great rivers of this fascinating and varied continent.
1 .Now, the opening date for our Global Playground is 10th July.
2 .And again we'd love to see you there so make a date and come and see this magnificent, original new amenity right in the heart of the city.
