Children's play areas

As a general rule, children need an element of risk in play areas because it is essential to their growth and development. It is preferable for children to learn about risks in a controlled setting. Our play equipment is aimed at a range of age and ability levels.

All play equipment in the district meets the highest standards of design, quality, and safety. Warwick District Council maintains over 40 play areas.
