This playground was improved as part of the playbuilder project - read more about Playbuilder projects. Additions included the installation of a "Borneo" jungle climber and a "Moonwalker" spinning disk installed in areas of bark mulch.
The old swings were replaced with a new Sutcliffe mixed set of cradle and junior seats and the cabin slide renovated, both of the safer surface areas under these items were resurfaced. Seating has been provided and children aged 3 to 14 now have a much improved exciting play facility.
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.
Access is across the field from Merley Lane where some limited car parking is available. We encourage the use of all our facilities by everyone, please let us know if you have any suggestions on how we could improve this facility for you.
