Parks & Play Areas

We maintain and look after a total of 22 parks and play areas. Continue reading to discover our recent refurbishment projects.

Ellenborough Park West

Ellenborough Park West is a wellbeing park, allowing for outside yoga, meditation, picnics, events and for children to play. The park will continue to have a ‘No Dogs’ policy, unlike its sister park Ellenborough Park East where dogs are very welcome. We hope to make the park a sanctuary that will enable people to come and sit, read a book, have a picnic with friends and family and generally enjoy this unique space.

So we respectfully ask:

  • No dogs
  • No metal detectorists (the ground is protected due to rare plants and can’t have holes dug)
  • No fireworks
  • No BBQ
  • No fires
  • No camping

Castle Batch SEND Play Park

Castle Batch has housed a play area for over 15 years and has been managed by the Town Council for nine years. The council recognised the need for SEND provision, and Castle Batch was the obvious choice for the redevelopment due to its size, need for refurbishment, and accessibility.

With thanks to our community partners who have generously helped to make this project happen:

  • National Lottery Community Fund
  • North Somerset Council
  • NSC Improving Play Spaces Fund
  • Big Worle
  • Tesco

Hutton Moor Skate Park

This park was refurbished in February 2017. The Town Council worked closely with users of the skate park to ensure that the designs made the most of the space to provide a multi-wheeled facility, that promotes activity and a healthy lifestyle which the whole family can be part of. The development of the skate park was made possible by the award of a £75,000 grant from Sport England to the Town Council, and additional funding was raised by Weston Skate Park Association.

Conniston Green

We know outdoor play for children allows; physical, social, emotional, imaginative and cognitive development. We put a lot of thought into our play areas to give the best fun and learning opportunities for children. Playgrounds allow children to challenge themselves in safety which also improves confidence and social wellbeing.

Slides and swings promote balance and coordination, climbing frames strengthen muscles, and tactile panels help with hand-eye skills.

We look forward to opening this park and welcoming you to it very soon.

Canberra Road

Weston-super-Mare Town Council was delighted to announce the official opening of the newly refurbished children’s play area on Canberra Road in February 2019. The Town Council invested £90,000 into the refurbishment, designed and installed by Proludic, which included the addition of a basket swing, agility trail, multiplay unit, cableway and more! 70 users can enjoy the play area at any given time and it is suitable for children up to 15 years old. The play area now also includes a wheelchair accessible picnic bench for family and friends to gather around, as well as 6 play items designed to deliver good play opportunities for a variety of additional needs, such as a low platform roundabout and play panels.
