Refurbished Playgrounds

The 2015 Play Strategy was developed to outline current provision and identify scope for adaptation or additional equipment. 

The strategy is a fluid document which is reviewed each year to ensure equipped areas are built around the needs of local children and young people. 

Each year, subject to funding, we aim to refurbish or upgrade the equipment some of our children's playgrounds.
