- Large playground with 3 separate climbing frame structures to suit each set of child ages, from todders, to preschool to primary school. There is softfall on the ground. There is a fence, however, there are 3 entrance/exit points none of which have stoppers- kids can open them by themselves and on one side of the playground is the car park and on the other is the river again with no fence/gate so child supervision is essential.
