Playground Review

Cleanliness 3 / 5
equipment 3 / 5
health and safety 5 / 5
picnic area 3 / 5
toilets 2 / 5

The playground area consists of many activities to entertain your children.

It’s quite a small, busy, fenced-off playground with two swing areas (one for toddlers, one for older kids), a spiraling slide and a large sandpit, which has a pretend dinosaur skeleton and eggs buried in it.

The area is safe and secure, and surfaced with safety flooring to avoid any nasty injuries.

The playground was clean and there were places to have a picnic (tables/green areas).

The only negative is that there are no toilets in the playground but there are some a couple of minutes’ walk away.

Xavier’s Review

The playground was too busy and not much to play with, too many people for just 1 slide “it was a ok playground”.

We would return to the playground if we were to study dinosaurs in the future.
