Saxilby Play Area Development

Play Area Opening

Memorial Field Play Area Re-Development

Following the hard work of volunteers and councillors, particularly on the Play Area Working Group, our new park has been installed and is being enjoyed by children and young people. The park includes a zip wire, a tower unit with slide and fireman’s pole, toddler and junior swings, a basket swing, a springer and a roundabout. The project has invested over £50,000 in the community.

Fencing is being installed around the new park at the end of March by the Grounds Team, with the kind assistance of Stirlin Developments. The fencing being used, is being removed from the old park and re-installed around the new park. This is because the old junior park is near the end of its life and will need to be removed soon. Based on the last external playground inspection report, the junior park has only 1 - 4 years life expectancy left. F


  • The see-saw from the old toddler park has kindly been refurbished by VTF ltd and will be re-installed in the new park.
  • The Foss Flyer Train is to be removed and refurbished by VTF ltd, with the assistance of SG Haulage and will be re-installed in the new park.
  • Fencing will remain around the metal swings near the back door of the bar.
  • Cycle racks, bins, picnic benches, signage and trees will be installed in the next few months after the fencing has been installed.

Future Plans: Wheeled Park, MUGA, and West Croft Drive Play Area

Long term plans also include a wheeled park (skate/scooter/BMX), multi-use games area (MUGA) and gym equipment.

At the West Croft Drive recreation area we are hoping to install items including a climbing wall, slides and picnic benches. These projects will be further progressed after the Memorial Field Play Area project is completed.
