“High quality, well-used parks bring people together and develop inclusive communities.

Inclusive play is an important part of the design of these parks, provide fun activities and help keep children healthy, and promote social inclusion which can only be good for all. Everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy our parks.

“These new play parks are a result of the Council’s £3m, five-year Play Strategy that was launched in 2017. With investment of £500,000 provided from the Rural Development fund which was matched funded by the Council, we have managed to complete nine similar projects throughout the district.”
