Davis Park play area is a local play area designed to cater for 4-8 year olds in the local area and would usually include 2 - 3 pieces of play equipment like swings, a roundabout and a climbing frame.

Find out what makes up a Local play area...

We work to a ‘play strategy’ that determines the funds available to refurbish a play area and also the numbers of pieces of equipment required to service the size of the area. The location also determines the likely material the equipment will be manufactured from, ie timber or metal. Surfacing selection is also based on likely maintenance required.
