This fenced dog free playground was completely redesigned in 2007 to cater for local children aged 3 to 14. New equipment includes a Tayplay cone climber, buddy swing and a range of modern play equipment supplied by Hags.
An area separated by a sloping footpath to a different level is provided aimed at the younger age range. This area includes activity walls, cradle swings, rockers and a toddler climbing frame / play house.
The surface of the play area was completely resurfaced using coloured wet pour to brighten the area and replace the old surface.
The play equipment in this play area was manufactured and installed to comply with current safety standards applying at the time of installation and all items of equipment are provided with a safer surface where required.
The play equipment and the immediate surrounding areas are inspected on a regular basis. An annual inspection is also carried out by an independent qualified organisation that prepares a safety audit and a report to enable the Council to plan long term maintenance and renewal.
