Children’s Play Area

At the South end of the Gardens adjacent to the Coffeehouse is a well equipped children’s play area. This is maintained by Braintree District Council to current safety standards, with soft surfacing under the equipment.

    Children love the play area, they can climb, run, swing, jump, slide and bounce to their hearts content!

    The Play area is open at the same times as the gardens

    The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter and the spirit heals with joy.
