The play park is gated so dogs can't enter. Dogs are not allowed in this part of the park.

There is a really big climbing frame with rope obstacles and wobbly wooden walkways. There is also a pretty steep slide. It is silver and can get a bit hot in the Summer!

The bucket swing is always a hit with my children. It is substantial and can fit several children in it.

The little rocker is good fun for smaller children.
