Playgrounds


*********************************************************************************
The play areas around Potton at Mill Lane Recreation Ground and Henry Smith Playing Fields are closed until further notice to prevent any unnecessary spread of COVID-19.  This includes the skatepark, outdoor gym and table tennis table at Henry Smith Playing Fields.

We ask that the public respect these closures and do not force the gates open.

The town council maintains two large playgrounds in Potton.
Henry Smith Playing Fields playground and Mill Lane Recreation Ground playground.

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.
