Children's play areas

We have 37 play areas. Each site has between two and 16 play items, ranging from spring animals to climbing frames.

All the play areas have safety surfaces under each play item, either bark or a rubber surface and the grass is regularly cut and collected. We check the play equipment on smaller sites every week and on larger sites, three times a week.

Once a year an independent inspector checks our play areas. Every three months an operational inspection is carried out to check for wear and tear.

Report a problem with play areas or outdoor equipment.

History of Queens Park playground

Play Safely was started by a group of Caterham mums to fundraise for and design an innovative playground in Queens Park. The playground opened in 1988 at a cost of £60,000 after years of fundraising. Tandridge District Council matched the funds raised by Play Safely and has maintained the playground as one of its flagship playgrounds ever since.
