Adur & Worthing Councils recognise the value of play in helping to meet its objective of making the local communities somewhere that people want to live work and invest.
One of the core values on which our Corporate Plan is based is to enhance the quality of life for all citizens. To this end we are passionate about ensuring that our youngest citizens are not forgotten.
The Councils have worked with a range of partners and stakeholders to establish a shared vision of what we should seek to deliver in terms of support for play.
We have an enviable record of providing and investing in play areas and equipment. The provision made by the Councils is supplemented by provision made by developers, registered social landlords and various grants, although provision extends to practical support of activities and programmes on the ground.
The playgrounds in Adur and Worthing have a wide range of play equipment, including accessible play equipment, from traditional swings and roundabouts to modern contemporary items, which entertain and stimulate children, and provide them with activities to help develop motor skills, balance and co-ordination as well as physical and social activity.
