Play areas

We manage playgrounds and activities for young people, from toddlers to teenagers.

Whether you are looking for a quiet park with some swings and a slide, or the adventure of a zip wire or climbing net, one of our 44 play areas provided by the Council will have something to suit your needs.

We inspect all our playgrounds weekly and have safety inspections every year to make sure they are as safe as possible.

Longacres Infants Play Area Improvements: please let us know what you think Toggle accordion

After over twenty years, some of the play equipment in the Longacres Infants Play Area is beyond repair and in need of being replaced. 

Using Section 106 funding generated from nearby developments, along with Ashley Ward locality funding, we are pleased to say that some new equipment can be funded. The main toddler multi-unit will be replaced, as will the spinner, and a new safety surface laid under both pieces of equipment.

Three national playground companies, all of whom have worked for the Council before, have provided illustrations of what can be provided within the £30,000 budget. We would like to know what children - and parents - think of the options attached below.

Please email us your preference & thoughts to by 20th March 2022.

All children’s play areas are dog-free zones.
