Equipped play areas

The splash pad in Chineham Park is currently closed for essential maintenance. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Play area - webPlay 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.

Chineham Park Splash Pad

The Splash Pad will be open 10am to 7pm every day from April to September. Although opening times may change due to unforeseen circumstances.

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.

Please be aware the toilet and baby changing facility on this site has been removed due to repeated incidents of vandalism. We will be exploring alternative options for users of the splash pad. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we do this.
