We want to enable children and their families to play and explore at Roadford Lake. Linking play to the natural environment is important to us and is of great benefit to everyone’s health and well being.

We are now in the depths of planning and fundraising for a fantastic new play space; the current offering was last installed in 2005, and we feel now is the time for improvements and expansion. 

Our plans

We now have detailed plans and have embarked upon our tendering process and fundraising journey. You can view our concept plans here.

‘Play is an essential part of every child’s life. It is vital for the enjoyment of childhood as well as for social, emotional, intellectual and physical development. When children are asked about what they think is important in their lives, playing and friends are usually at the top of the list.’
