The Playground

The playground is a bit dated but is great if you’re a fan of the swings as it has big sets two sets for babies and older children. The playground is located in a large green space so plenty of opportunities for running around and playing games like football. This tall slide is visible from the main road and my children had asked to visit to try it every time we drove past for years before we finally got round to it.

Playground Equipment for Older Children

As well as the large swing set there is this strange wobbly roundabout which my daughter really enjoyed.

This climbing frame offered something a bit challenging which my daughter liked. There is also a static surfboard which is always popular.
