Play areas

We manage over 40 play areas across the borough which are open all year round and provide a wide range of fun play experiences.

Please ensure that you comply with the current COVID guidance, detailed on the government website, when visiting our play areas.  

Our play areas normally cater for a variety of age ranges from 5 year olds to teenagers.

Be a friend of the park

Some of our sites have active 'friends of the park' groups. Working with our rangers, 'friends' have the chance to become actively involved in the management of the parks - you could use your site maintenance skills, help to run and publicise events or even be the ranger's eyes and ears when you use the park.

If you are interested in joining or forming a friends group please contact us via
