Play area improvements

The Council has 46 play areas located across the borough that are provided for children and young people of all abilities up to age of 15. These are managed and maintained by the Council's Streetscene team who undertake regular inspections to ensure that the facilities are safe.

Since 2015, many of our play areas have received an upgrade. This has included new equipment, some of which is inclusive, improvement works to existing equipment and repairs to surfacing where necessary.

Local residents and users were consulted about the play area improvements before any changes were made. For information about these consultations please visit

Residents can also have their say on any current consultations by joining the 'Let's Talk Fareham' Facebook group  External Hyperlink
