Play is Important

Bath and North East Somerset Council believes that play is an important part of a child's development, as explained in our Play Policy and on our Play Team pages.

We are committed to helping children and young people develop into healthy independent adults by offering the space, facilities and support for them to play. It is in play that children test their beliefs of how the world is made up and how they fit and function within it.

Play areas have to provide exciting and stimulating opportunities for children of all ages to play. Although they are designed to be as safe as possible while still offer good play value they can never be 100% safe.

The risks are carefully and professionally managed and all is done to keep them as low as possible while still maintaining optimum play value for the children.

If you would like further detail on Bath and North East Somerset Council’s approach to carefully managing risk in children’s play please see Playful Risk: Risk Benefit.

Additional Play Areas

Parish and Town Councils also provide play areas, as do the Curo Group (Social Landlord/Housing Association).

Inspection and Maintenance

All Bath and North East Somerset Council play areas are inspected and maintained at RPii weekly, quarterly and annual levels.

Very well used play areas are inspected daily, others 2 or 3 times a week.
