Playgrounds

The town council maintains two large playgrounds in Potton.
Henry Smith Playing Fields playground and Mill Lane Recreation Ground playground.
We currently manage around 60 equipped, unsupervised play areas throughout the town.

Inspection and maintenance

  • All play areas are visited twice a week to remove all litter and broken glass.
  • All play equipment is inspected once a week to make sure that it is safe for continued use. 
  • If we receive reports of broken glass or damaged equipment, between the scheduled visits we will arrange for the play area to be visited again.
  • Each year all play areas receive an independent inspection to make sure that they meet the British and European safety standards.
