Eastry Children's Play Area

In early 2018 the wooden children’s play area by the allotments was removed as it was unsafe and beyond economic repair and due to its location away from the main children’s play facility in the Gun Park, was considered underused.

Some residents have requested that the facility be reinstated. Eastry Parish Council have allocated £12,000 to do this. The Parish Council has also received a requests for an overhaul of all play facilities in the Parish.

Before making any plans, Eastry Parish Council want your views.
