Playgrounds

The Erewash Borough currently has 53 play areas. Many of these have been refurbished in the last five years and have some exciting and adventurous play equipment .

Many of our parks offer a variety of play equipment for different age groups. Most of our neighbourhood parks have small play areas for younger children, with equipment such as swings and see-saws, whilst our bigger parks offer a wide range of activities and equipment for all ages from toddlers to teenagers.
