Play Areas

Mendip has 48 play areas including kick-about areas, netball courts and skate-parks, all of which are free entry. These cater for age groups between 3 and and 15 years old.

Mendip District Council's play strategy can be found pdf icon here. [2Mb]. It is currently being revised and will be available in due course.

Mendip play areas and skate parks

All of our play areas and skate parks meet the requirements of the standards set by the National Playing Fields Association and are inspected to the requirements of these guidelines and Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. The list below is not exhaustive as many Mendip villages also have play areas, managed by their parish council.
