Chadlington village playground is visible from the road and actually has pretty good equipment, though, it needed TLC. One of the swings was missing, the sea saw was old and rusty and the wobble bridge was cordoned off. We visited at the end of summer, so I am hoping the situation might have improved.
Irrespective of that, we loved the play area and had a great time. There is a decent Obstacle course around a witches hat and you all must know by now how much I (and Ay) love an obstacle course. There is a climbing pyramid and three small mounds for climbing up and down, one of which has a slide and the other one has a tunnel traversing it. Behind the mound was one huge and one small tree, which was full of children climbing it. There is a basketball hoop near the entrance too
On the other side is the toddler area with a small toddler frame, some swings, role play vehicles, and a stand up spiral.
The play area is fenced but it is all grass terrain except for a bit of safety matting in the toddler area which just about covers the stand up round spiral but does not go under the climbing frame or swings which is more high risk in my opinion. There are remains of some wood chips under the climbing frame but are pretty much not existent anymore
