Play areas

Byron Close play area

We opened a £100k play area in The Moorings in November 2022. 

Located near Byron Close and Owen Close in the Moorings, the playground has been purpose-built for young children aged one to six years. Many young families live in the area, with around 200 households benefiting from the play area on their doorsteps. 

The play area has a soft rubbery surface with speciality play equipment including play mounds with stepping stones, a cargo net, climbing holds and balance beams. Each piece of play equipment aims to encourage imaginative play and help children to develop sensory and motor skills.
