There are more than 90 public play areas, ball courts, skateboard parks and outdoor gyms in the district.

We manage 60 locations. Other play areas are managed by parish councils and community groups.

Parks staff inspect all our children's play areas weekly or fortnightly to make sure they're in good working condition. They're also checked annually by an independent inspector.

We respond urgently to reports of broken equipment, vandalism or broken glass. To report damage to a playground or accidents, contact us.

Play area development

We work closely with parish councils and community groups to improve the district's play areas. For funding information, see our commuted sums page.
