We own and maintain 42 unsupervised playgrounds in Harlow.
Many of our playgrounds are located close to housing estates making it easy for children to access and enjoy.
Our largest playground is the adventure playground, in Harlow Town Park, which includes a zip line and giant climbing net.
There is also an inclusive play area in the Town Park, near Pets' Corner, which provides accessible equipment for all children, including a wheelchair accessible suspension bridge and a sensory path.
There are 6 multiuse games areas in Harlow – perfect for a game of tennis or basketball.
The safety and cleanliness of the play areas are checked at least once a week.
The working and safety of the equipment are checked once a month by us, and once a year by independent inspection.
If there is broken play equipment at your local play area, you can report this online.
You can also report other issues that may affect your local playground, such as dog fouling, graffiti, dumped rubbish and broken glass, online.
