Status message

We are currently streamlining our processes, which means when we collect your rent via Direct Debit it will have a new account reference. This does not change the way in which we collect Direct Debits. If you pay between 16th – 22nd of the month your October payment will be taken later than planned.

Play areas

You are here

Ipswich has 87 play areas which are managed by the Borough Council. These facilities range from large installations in the major parks to smaller community areas in local neighbourhoods. Locations and further details of these play areas are shown on the map below.

The Council has also extended the level of provision to include skate parks near Stoke Bridge and in Whitehouse Park, as well as smaller skateboard ramps in other parks. Multi-unit games areas and smaller scale games areas have also been increased.

Play is an essential part of every child's life and is vital for their development. Through play, children learn about themselves and the world around them. The play facilities in Ipswich have been designed to encourage a child's physical, social and creative development.
