Play Areas

Play is important!

The Parish Council owns and maintains three playgrounds and a BMX track around the parish. The Council is fully committed to improving the play provision throughout the parish and has embarked on an improvement programme. The Parish Council has also committed to adopt the play areas in the new housing developments at the Cala Homes Airfield Site (off Pegasus Way) in 2020 and Dandara Glebe site (off Stanbridge Road) in approximately 2021/2.


Sheerstock Playground

Sheerstock playground situated by the railway line behind the houses of Sheerstock. We were delighted to completely refurbish this recreation area in July 2019.  The new equipment has lots of exciting play equipment such as swings, roundabout, trampoline, multi-play units designed for children up to 14.  There is also a sports area with a ball wall, table tennis table which is for the use of all ages. 

Banks Park Playground

This playground is located next to the Scout and Guide Hut at Banks Park. The old playground was very limited with little play value. The Parish Council has undertaken a significant refurbishment at the beginning of 2019 and we are delighted with the results. This new playground has lots of new exciting equipment to play on and is designed for under 12 years. We very pleased to get the ‘thumbs up’ from our younger parishioners.

Woodways Playground

This Playground is situated on the recreation ground next to the Tennis Courts. It is rammed packed with fun play equipment for all ages. It contains a zip wire, swings, slides, climbing nets, trim trail to name but a few! Designed for children under 14, it provides all sorts of challenges and fun elements to play on. 

Woodways is a well-loved playground which has been place for a number of years. Predominately made in wood, it has served the community well, but is now starting to show its age. As part of the playground improvement programme, the Council has replaced grass matting under a number of the play equipment. Long term the Parish Council will be looking at an overhaul of this play area in few years’ time.

Woodways BMX Track Playground

The Parish Council is delighted to be providing this rare and exciting facility in Haddenham. It is only facility of its kind for miles around. The track was installed a number of years ago but hadn’t been regularly maintained. With the support of parishioners, the Parish Council completely refurbished this facility in 2017 - restoring it to its former glory!

We know how this facility is valued by all our parishioners regardless of their age as the Council regularly gets correspondence telling us how much it is appreciated.

The Council is delighted to provide this BMX track for future generations to enjoy.
