Equipped play areas
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday (23 March 2020), all Play areas and outdoor equipment will now be closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak until further notice, residents are still able to enjoy a daily walk or run at a safe distance from others to get essential exercise in the borough’s parks which remain open at present.
Play areas provide a range of challenging experiences for children in a relatively safe environment where they can develop skills such as creativity, meet other children and become more independent and aware of their own abilities.
We provide over 150 play areas around the borough and are committed to maintaining them as safely as possible.
All council play areas are inspected daily or weekly depending on use so that hazards such as glass and litter are kept to a minimum and that the equipment is in good working order.

Please note after extended periods of high usage, the splash pad may temporarily shut down in order to top up its water supply. This can take up to 30 minutes.
