About our playgrounds
The city has 53 playgrounds, from larger destination parks to smaller neighbourhood parks.
Our playgrounds offer a range of active, outdoor play opportunities and equipment. They support the development and health of children of all ages and abilities.
We aim to inspire all generations to get out and play and create healthier and happier communities.
We're currently working on a playground refurbishment programme. More information on the programme, including upcoming work, can be found further down this page.

Managing our playgrounds
We manage and maintain the play areas to ensure they are clean and safe to use, while still challenging and exciting, for all those who use them.
The safety of children is a priority. We carry out safety checks on every park and every piece of equipment every 2 weeks.
An independent inspector carries out full inspections of all equipment quarterly and annually.

Use our online playground incident reporting form to tell us of any accidents or 'near misses' that occur. This will help prevent any further incidents.
Playground refurbishment programme
We started a major £3 million refurbishment programme for the city’s playgrounds in 2021.
Between 2021 and 2024, 45 sites will receive a full or partial refurbishment. This will ensure that children of all ages and abilities will enjoy them to the fullest for many years to come.
