There are over 40 Harlow Council owned and maintained unsupervised equipped play areas around Harlow. The adventure playground is in Harlow Town Park.

There is also one play area in the Harlow Town Centre Market that is not owned and maintained by Harlow Council

Harlow Council play areas are checked at least once a week for safety and cleanliness, monthly to check the workings and safety of the equipment and an annual inspection is carried out by an independent inspector to check the play area conforms to a high specification.

Fancy a game of tennis or basketball?

The Council also provides free open access tennis courts and multi-use games areas at Blackbush Springs, Bush Fair, Foldcroft, The Dashes, Northbrooks and Staple Tye.

I want to report broken play equipment?

You can report broken play equipment, vandalism or report an accident within a play area to an Advisor at Contact Harlow.

You can also make some reports online, such as dog fouling, graffiti, dumped rubbish and broken glass.
