We are asking for you and your children’s help to shape what will be super new playground facilities at both Frimley Lodge and Lightwater Country Parks. Work to install the facilities will be completed during the autumn. We are currently developing proposal schemes for both play areas and we welcome any other ideas and feedback that you may have.

Following our playground inspections, we have had to take the zip slide at Heatherside Recreation Ground out of action with immediate effect as one of the posts has evidence of rot.
The provider who installed the zip slide has been asked to inspect and replace the damaged equipment as soon as possible and we will keep you updated of progress once we have further information.
