“Play” is an all embracing word which includes providing facilities for the enjoyment of users from toddlers to adults.
The Council provides fixed play areas for children up to the age of 12 years old and some sites cater for older children and young people. The fixed play areas are split between those that cater for children under 6 years of age and those that cater for older children as well. Signage has been installed around all the play areas in the town that the Council is responsible for.
Additional facilities offered by the Council (in its custodial capacity) includes outdoor fitness equipment and a multi-use games areas (MUGA) and skate park.
Many of the fixed play area sites are accessible for users who may have a disability.
The Town Council are responsible for the routine inspection and maintenance of these areas. Please report any maintenance issues to the Town Council.
