Enhancing Play Areas across Yate
In light of the success of the Witches Hat Play Area refurbishment, the Town Council undertook a project in 2005 to revamp and enhance the St Mary’s Play Area. In 2006, we enhanced Millside Playzone. Following consultation with the users of the Playzone, we installed some new spikas (twirly sticks), a football goal and an aerial runway. The Kingsgate Park Play area has also been upgraded and houses state of the art equipment for children up to 12 years of age.
Play equipment is also sited at:
- Eggshill Lane
- Howard Lewis Park
- St Mary’s Field
- Tyndale Park
- Yate West Kickabout
- Brinsham Fields & Lake ( both senior and junior)
- Longs Drive
- Halifax Road Kickabout
- Lye Field Kickabout
All Town Council play areas are revamped and enhanced on a rolling programme.
Regular Safety Surveys
Yate Town Council regularly inspects play equipment and has annual independent safety surveys of all play equipment, in order to maintain a high standard of service provision.
