Parks and Walks

Children’s Play Park
The Village Hall stands in one and a half acres of grounds, which has been made into a good children’s play area and picnic park.  It is approximately hour-glass shaped.  The lower part is a well-equipped grassed play park with a slide, a maypole-style roundabout, cradle and standard swings, a climbing frame, a seesaw, a toddler’s adventure bridge, several sit-in rides, a tarmac singles tennis court (which is converted to a football pitch in the winter) and plenty of room to kick a ball.  The rides are themed as a drover and his animals.    The grass is mown at least once a week in summer.   Several litter and dog-waste bins are fixed to the adjacent riverside timber fence, while the whole of the play park is separated from the adjacent spacious adjacent level tarmac car park by a steel railing.  A tall metal mesh fence prevents all but the wildest balls from landing in the River Marlais, which runs past the park.  There is a toilet at the highway end of the car park.

Picnic Park
At the top of the play park a concrete path leads through a narrow waist to the picnic park.  At the top, there is a pool with a small pebble shore.  The park is a pleasing mixture of natural trees and turf.  There is a picnic table and several benches, as well as a living willow hut.
