Play equipment

The Parks and Open Spaces Department maintains over 100 play areas for Taunton Deane and local parish councils.

You can report a problem with play equipment by filling out our online form or calling 01823 356356.

One of our inspectors will visit the site to make the place safe and action any work required. We carry out small repairs and remove graffiti on site but if larger repairs are needed they will be carried out at our main depot.

Playground inspectors have ROSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) certificated training and conform to British Standard BS EN 1176.

If you suffer or witness an accident involving our play equipment please report it to Parks and Open Spaces on telephone 01823 217572 or email, or Health and Safety Manager on telephone 01823 356831 or email
