    The area of the field is large so we have a great opportunity to have an under 6/7 area and an older area totally separate for different age groups and it needs to fenced off to stop dog owners going on it.
    The top end (near the hall) could have some fixed goal posts in it as well.

    This is a great idea as I have 2 children aged 8 years old and 3 years and they would be excited to see something like these in the gutterscroft x currently there is no where for then to play in the gutterscroft as it has been vandalised by youths who continue to destroy anything that has been installed and they ruin it for young children so it would be nice to see some security in place if you are going to spend that sort of money on equipment x

    I am thrilled there is going to be a new play area for Haslington! I have submitted my survey response but I also have made some comments below which are also the thoughts of many others completing the survey:-

    1. The park needs to be fenced off for safety and to keep dogs away from the children. Not only do dogs run up and scare the children but there is always dog poo on the ground.
    2. Two separate play areas, one for small children and one for bigger children. One doesn’t suit all and some of the older equipment is hazardous for little ones.
    3. Safe flooring such as the sponge type flooring you get in modern parks.
    4. Regular cleaning and maintenance as I have often found broken glass and litter which has been of the big reasons I don’t take my children.

    Agreed that rubberised flirting on play area would be great
    I have two children and guess I don’t want two different areas of fenced off separately although I can see why people would, I don’t want a child in each section
    Maintenance is an issue- vandalism- not sure what can be done
    Dog fowling is an issue – minority repeat
    offenders I suspect
    Some picnic benches would be great
