Play Areas

Nexus Altitude multi-play unit at Cox Row Play Area

The Parish Council looks after 8 Play Areas across the Parish at Cox Row, Fryern, Hiltingbury, Lincolns Valley, Mead Road, Pennine Way, Suffolk Drive and Westmorland Way. Every year around £50k is put aside for play area improvements and replacing worn out units. Unless there is an unexpected need to replace a unit urgently (for safety reasons) these updates/replacements are undertaken on a 3-year rolling basis.

Since taking over the play areas in 2014/15 we have spent about £250k on buying and installing new equipment, and updating the safety surfacing.
