Granborough Play Area

Our beautiful play area is located at the end of Church Lane.  Go through the gate and follow the footpath to the next gate.

The land is leased from the Oxford Diocese.  The lease was renewed in 2013 and will run until 28th February 2033.

In May 2012 the Village Plan was completed.  Among the findings, it was identified that the play area was in need of an update for older children.  The Parish Council carried out several consultations and decided upon a number of new pieces of equipment.  Funds were raised with the help of Community Chest and friends of the play area, and today the play area has a range of equipment suitable for toddlers and older children alike.  The bench and picnic table have recently been restored too.

We pay for the grass to be cut in the play area and on the approach to it, every couple of weeks in the growing season and provide a litter bin to help everyone keep the play area clean and tidy.

May 2017 saw the replacement of the wooden trail, we hope you like it!

In December 2018 the Horse Rocker was refurbished with thanks to Cllr Wattam, and the Basket Ball Hoop and Post were replaced.   We would ask that children don’t hang off the hoop or climb the pole please!

The play area is inspected weekly to ensure it remains in good condition, and we have an annual inspection by professionals to ensure safety standards.  We passed an inspection in May this year (2017).
