The parish boasts 24 play areas, including 6 MUGAs (Multi Use Games Arenas) and a skate park that was refurbished in July 2020. The play areas are maintained and inspected by the Council’s Parks & Open Spaces Team with an annual independent inspection from RoSPA.
Some play areas are monitored by CCTV to help protect our assets and to make our families feel safe. We also have good working relationships with our local PCSOs for North Swindon Police.
The Council manages and maintains most of the play areas in the Parish. Due to the condition of some of the older areas a review is currently being undertaken of all the play facilities. Some areas will require a major refurbishment to improve safety and to update equipment while others are in almost pristine condition. It is intended to implement a five year plan to bring all to the same standard.
