Play Areas

We manage 60 play areas including kick about areas throughout Mendip and two skate parks at Shepton Mallet and Glastonbury, all of which are free entry. These cater for age groups between 36 months 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.

All of our pdf icon play areas [34kb] 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.

How to report damage:

To report any damage within the play areas Mendip District Council manages contact Neighbourhood Services, providing the following information:

  • The road name and town of the play area
  • The item of equipment that has been damaged
  • The damaged caused
  • Date the damage was noticed

Some town and parish councils provide and manage their own play areas and reports of any damage will need to be provided to them.
