Rother District Council maintains more than 30 public outdoor play facilities in Rother ranging from equipped play areas for toddlers and juniors through to skate-parks and ball-courts for older children and young people.

Our parks and open spaces also provide a pleasant and safe environment for play and informal recreation.  Many of the Town and Parish Councils provide play facilities in addition to those that we manage.

We recognise that play is a very important part of a child’s life and that more can be done to increase play opportunities for children and young people in Rother.  In 2012 the play facilities in Egerton Park, Bexhill underwent a complete makeover creating a fantastic new play-zone for children of all ages.  We have subsequently carried out smaller refurbishment projects at other sites and are supporting communities where possible to improve provision.

New items of equipment have most recently been provided at Southlands (Sidley, Bexhill) and Masons Field (Rye) and plans for a new skatepark in Bexhill are in development.
