Marquis Lane Play Area Improvements

Marquis Lane Play Area is next to Batford Springs Local Nature Reserve and is much loved by the children that use it. Harpenden Town Council, who own the play area, have set aside funding to improve the play area and want your views on what it should look like in the future. The Town Council has set up a Marquis Lane Play Area Steering Group, consisting of local Councillors and volunteer parents, to lead this project. As an initial step, the group is seeking the opinions, thoughts and views about the play area from its users, particularly what type of equipment is currently being enjoyed by children and what type of equipment may help to improve their play experiences in the future.

The group would like to get the views from young people as well so we ask for you to complete this survey with your child if possible. If you would like to do a separate questionnaire for them, please feel free to do so.

* 1. How many times do you use the play area?

* 2. How would you rate the current equipment?

* 3. How would you rank the current equipment in terms of your children's favourite? Please rank with 1 being the most favourite and 8 being the least favourite

* 4. What type of equipment would help to improve children's play experience when they visit? (tick up to 3 options based on what your child likes the most)

* 5. What type of play do your children enjoy? (tick up to 3 options based on what your child likes the most)

* 6. What type of material would you like equipment to be made of? 

* 7. Please write any other comments you would like to share with us regarding the Play Area currently, how it may be improved or anything you would like us to consider for the future

* 8. Please tell us how many children you have in your family and what age they are.

* 9. Does your child/do any of your children have a disability?

* 10. If you answered yes, please tell us what the disability is and what would help them get the most out of the play area

* 11. Where do you live? Please enter your postcode

* 12. If you would like to be kept up to date with developments at the play area please provide us with your email address.
