Special Needs Playground

The Playground is now closed and due to reopen on 1st April 2022. Work has recently been completed on fencing the area outside the Playground in order to provide a safe area for children entering and exiting vehicles and to provide a degree of privacy. Parking in this area will be limited as before, but more parking is available in the new cafe car park, by agreement with the Travis family.

Car Park Area - 1
Our playground at Kingston Seymour is much used by the local families who have children with special needs and by organisations for those who support them. Its facilities include specially designed playground equipment that allows a carer to accompany a child on a swing or down a slide and a wheelchair swing where the child and their wheelchair can be accommodated. It also has a sandpit, rocking toys, a play house, tubular bells and plenty of room to run around and let off steam in a secure and safe environment. A waterfall and a movement sensitive water feature make a calming corner of the garden. There are picnic tables and a rain shelter and lots of bikes, tricycles and tractors have been donated by local people to add to the fun.

The playground is maintained by members of Yeo Valley Lions Club and small teams arrange daily visits to ensure the facility is kept tidy and any problems dealt with. We know that this facility is greatly valued by those who use it. We have a Visitors Book so that families can leave comments. We are grateful for, and encouraged by, the very positive comments made by those using the Playground and a selection of these is reproduced below.
