Playground and Paddling Pool

The playground, with its many fun facilities for little ones, is one of the most poplar destinations in the park. The paddling pool attracts families from across the community on sunny days during the summer, but is set to close due to funding cuts.

Please join our appeal to get a new Splash Pad to replace the pool and keep the playground fun for generations to come!

The clean, fenced play area, shaded by trees, provides a variety of safe play equipment for younger children plus picnic tables and seating. Swings, slides, climbing frames, the toddler play area and more are hugely popular.

The play area was refurbishmed through the Play Pathfinder Project some years ago to include a zip wire, tractor tyre swing, climbing boulders, spinner, landscaping mounds and balancing logs. New picnic tables have been installed - one of which has been financed by the Friends and a table tennis table.
