Active, outdoor play is an important part of children's development and health , which is shown in the range of equipment in the city's 45 playgrounds.

The largest play areas in Brighton and Hove are at Hove Park, St Ann's Well Gardens, Preston Park and Queens Park. There are also play areas along the seafront, all with water play, at Hove Lagoon, West Pier and Madeira Drive. Use this link for public transport information.

We manage and maintain the play areas to ensure they are clean and safe to use, whilst still challenging for those who use them. All playgrounds are inspected on a regular basis.

The council undertook a two year development programme to improve the quality of the city's play spaces, making them more challenging and innovative for children and teenagers in Brighton and Hove. For more information on this fantastic project go to the my play space pages.

The Brighton & Hove Playbus provides exciting and safe mobile play and welcomes children from across the city. We aim to strengthen communities by providing an opportunity for children and adults to interact and make new friends.
