The Council currently has 52 playgrounds throughout the borough and is responsible for their inspection and maintenance. Most play areas are dog proof, accessible to wheelchairs and pushchairs and provide for children up to 11 years. Dudley’s play areas have been designed and built to conform to the latest British and European standards (BS EN 1176 and BS EN 1177) covering both surfaces and equipment.
A small number of play areas have facilities for teenagers.
The playgrounds are inspected and cleaned regularly; visits are scheduled three times per week. There are plans to develop and refurbish various play areas over the next year as part of a rolling programme to improve the play provision in the Borough when finance becomes available.
