Looks like Sutton Courtenay Recreation Ground has undergone a recent refurbishment, as you can still smell the new wooden equipment and is actually quite good catering for all ages. The play area is fenced and is mostly tarmac-ed with some grassy areas.
There is a two tiered Witches tower climbing frame for older children. The only way to get to the slide is via the climbing wall (which was not easy) or via the cargo net. You can come down via the slide or through the fireman pole, which is pretty high. There is a really good obstacle course and an octagon ball for climbing
There is loosely defined area for toddlers and younger children which contains a mounds with wide slides and tunnels, inground trampolines, mushroom/ toad stools, spinner, Small wobbly bridge, stepping logs/mounds and musical flowers for toddlers.
Outside the fenced area is the huge Football ground/ cricket field and Basket ball court. A small skate park and BMX pump track is at one end and there is a four person carousel swing in between.
There are shelters, sitting benches and improved access from the car park with a footpath linking the areas. A Running trail runs around the perimeter of the site and at the south west corner of the Recreation Ground, there is an outdoor fitness area with 6 activity stations. Visitors can download an app from Kompan Ltd which enables them to download videos and tips on how to use the equipment, but we did not do that.
You can hear and see horses neigh-ing in the farm across the road, which never loses its charm!
