Have you got a local play area
that needs improving?

Before a play area can be improved, it is important to assess whether the play area is up to standard. A simple and easy Self-Assessment can be completed on your desktop, tablet or smartphone to assess whether the play area meets the My Play Area Standards; Local, Park and Flagship.

A Full Report is also available to provide a detailed assessment on the play area’s equipment, the play area design and the surrounding facilities. The information will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the play area and provide suggestions to how the play area can be improved for all abilities. This information can then be used to assist with any grant funding opportunities as it clearly shows where weaknesses are present and how they will be addressed.
