Children's Play Areas

Play areas can be found throughout Orkney. To find information on your local play area, please see the links within the Related Sites section at the side of the page.

We help communities create play areas, and can offer a wealth of advice and information.  The Council has the job of approving suitable sites for play areas, and making sure that play equipment is suitable. Once a new play area has been created and passed an inspection, we will maintain the site and replace equipment up to every 10 years.
