There is a flood alert in effect. Please stay safe and follow the latest Flooding information and advice.


The former Mendip district has 45 play areas including kick-about areas, netball courts and skate-parks, all of which are free entry. These cater for age groups between 3 and 15 years old.
Somerset Council’s play strategy can be found here. It is currently being revised and will be available in due course.

Play areas and skate parks

All our play areas and skate parks meet the requirements of the standards set by the National Playing Fields Association. They are inspected to the requirements of these guidelines, and The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. The list below is not exhaustive as many villages in the former Mendip district also have play areas, managed by their parish council.

How to report damage
