Play Area Locations

Play Area

Bassetlaw District Council are responsible for 35 playgrounds in Bassetlaw. These are mainly in Retford and Worksop but there are other playgrounds across the District. In the rural areas there are other play sites provided by Parish Councils and voluntary bodies.

We have produced a table giving details of where our play park locations in Bassetlaw are, the age range that the equipment is intended to be used by and any special facilities that site may have.
