On arrival me and Xavi thought that the playground was a rather big space and colorful.
There was loads of equipment all spaced out within the large open space. It had just stop raining so there wasn’t many park users in the playground at the same time as the equipment being wet.
The equipment seemed to cater for a range of ages, Xavi loved the different kind of pirate ships, slides and climbing frames.
There were many slides big and small and a handful of swings also a huge sandpit with a slide in the Middle with a climbing net to get to the top which looked fun.
On inspection there was only one piece of equipment that was completely out of use not sure what it was, there was also a climbing frame with a padlock with a chain confusion is an understatement.
There are plenty of places to have a picnic or a snack in the playground or right outside if you want to be away from the play area, basically plenty of seating.
The toilets were located across from the playground but seeing as we didn’t need to use them I’m not sure what they were like to be honest.
Overall the playground is quite clean the only issue I had was that there was a few cigarette butts around the picnic table area but as we wasn’t eating we was just changing from wetsuit to dry clothes it didn’t really bother us, along with some alcoholic tin cans.
He had a really lovely day and said that the playground was “good”
