Our play areas

Play areas, multi-use games area (MUGAs) and exercise equipment are now available to use. New signage has been installed by our play inspection team to provide guidance on using the equipment safely.

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 71 play areas around the district 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.
