Play areas

We care passionately about the safety and cleanliness of our play areas to ensure that families are able to fully enjoy the facilities. All of our areas are checked at least fortnightly, and once a year they also have an external safety audit.

To report a fault or hazard, please email cleansafegreen@dacorum.gov.uk or call 01442 228000 and ask for Clean, Safe and Green.
