Everyone was welcome to the Eid celebration at Moffy Hill play area in Edinburgh Road on Sunday.
Cllr Hari Dev Sharma who represents Furze Platt on the Royal Borough and a team of volunteers who organised the day ensured that the once derelict site in Maidenhead had never been as lively.
The site was transformed into a popular play area after 94 per cent of the nearby population gave their support to the scheme.
There was a bouncy castle, face painting and lots of food at Sunday's event.
Cllr Sharma said: "Some people who had lived here for years did not know any of the others, so it was a nice way of bringing the community together."
