Play areas

  • Parks, sport and leisure

There are over 40 play areas across its parks and open spaces.

Improved play areas

In Barnet we're always looking for ways to improve, refurbish or reinstate our play areas so that they can be enjoyed to their full potential by all. 



Lyttelton Playing Fields

The site has new surfacing, benches, bins and 19 new play elements. Members of the community group have also installed amphitheatre style stone seating.

The project was led by members of the local community who have turned a previously underused children’s play area into an imaginative and popular space.

Princes Park

Changes to the site include nine new play elements, a netball hoop and a football goal.

The Princes Park play area has been transformed with the old wooden multi play unit replaced with a newer version by popular demand.

New surfacing reduced the impact of boggy areas of the park. 

Brookside Walk

This site adds value to a previously under used section of land situated next to the iconic Dollis Brook. The Brookside Walk play area is a unique and attractive play space with a balance of natural and formal play.

A total of 11 new play items were installed and the innovative design makes use of the sites landscape, implementing tunnels and verges into existing terrain.

Edgwarebury Park

A new children’s play area was installed in Edgwarebury Park to improve the existing facilities. The new play space has seven new items.

Time invested in resurfacing the play area, improving boundary fencing and adding new seating created a more welcoming space for both children and their parents and guardians.
