Harborough District Council has just introduced state of the art play equipment at play areas in Fleckney, Great Glen (Cromwell Road) and Market Harborough – with play areas in Lutterworth and Broughton Astley to be revamped later this year.

The new play equipment promotes sensory play, educational play, fitness play and 'non-prescriptive play' which allows children to communicate at their own pace in an unstructured way. More »

It also includes inclusive play equipment which is suited to disabled children.

Councillor James Hallam, Harborough District Council's portfolio holder for finance and assets, said: "This fantastic new play equipment is transforming play areas for families across the district and I'm delighted we are set to continue our programme of investment and improvements to play areas in Lutterworth and Broughton Astley."
