Villagers at Feniton celebrated the completion of a £48,000 upgrade to their Ely Close play area on Friday.
The money was raised through local fundraising, a generous grant from Viridor Credits - following an application by the parish council, which also contributed from its own budget - a contribution from East Devon District councilor Phil Twiss's locality budget and the Investing in Devon initiative.
A ceremony to celebrate the improvements to the play area, which is open to children under 11, was hosted by Feniton Parish Council.
Parish council chairman Martyn Smith said: "This shows how the community can come together, with local children providing the bunting to help us celebrate the day.
"Our next priority is to improve Feniton's Queen Elizabeth II play area for older children."
