The playground is on the recreation ground adjacent to Hauxton Centre, with the indoor and outside seating areas of the coffee bar overlooking it. The playground was opened on 29 March 2018.

The play equipment includes:

Zip-wire of 20 metres length
Five way swing
Bird’s nest basket swing
Two seat cradle swing
Robinia climbing frame
Parcour 4
Trampoline circus
Galaxy Saturn Carousel
Toddler area with Toddler ship, sand pit, Pony seesaw, climbing frame with slides and rocking elephant.

If you spot any issues with any of the equipment please advise the parish Clerk on

A bench seat has been located within the fenced toddler area.  Picnic tables and seats are around the area.
The 7-a-side football pitch has been re-layed out and new nets, with safety fixings, put on the existing goals which have been securely relocated.
The existing basketball practice court has been cleaned up, lines repainted and a new net put on the existing hoop and backboard.

We are regularly brushing the sand in the toddler area back into sand pit.  If anyone wants to do this in the meantime, please feel free to use the brushes stored in the shed near the basketball court.
