Affinity Sutton, an affordable housing provider which has around 1,500 homes in Plymouth, teamed up with Plymouth City Council to breathe new life into the play park.
More than £43,000 was invested in getting the park shipshape and it now boasts brand-new play equipment including a pirate boat, slide, swings and safety surface, grassed area and three distinct play areas for young children, games and teenagers.
Matt Parsonage, Head of Neighbourhood Investment at Affinity Sutton, said: "As a business for social purpose, we are continually investing in our communities and are committed to creating places for our communities to thrive.
"We are thrilled to celebrate the reopening of the new-look Savage Road park and we hope that local families will feel a sense of ownership and enjoy using it for many years to come."
