Toddler Playgrounds

Our toddler area on the Recreation Ground is now closed, until we install a brand new playground.

Please use the toddler play area just off Glebe Road instead – it’s a lovely enclosed area with various pieces of equipment and plenty of space to run around. See the map below for its location.
