About our play parks

We currently own and maintain 36 managed equipped children’s play areas and 2 skate parks which are open public spaces and free to use.

Our play spaces range from traditional playgrounds to new adventure play areas each catering for a range of ages and abilities.

Play areas benefit a child as they provide a form of exercise that promotes wellbeing and wholesome physical development.

As a natural outlet for children, active play:

  • allows them to explore their environment
  • develops muscle strength and coordination
  • helps self-confidence
  • increases flexibility, fine and gross motor skills
  • is related to the development of a wide variety of physical skills, including those involved in sports
