Park maintenance

Broken glass

Broken glass can be dangerous and we are keen to remove it as quickly as possible, especially if it is in a well-used area like a children's playground. Please report it if you find broken glass on a hard surface, grassed area or in a play area.

Report broken glass

Damage to play equipment

Our playground equipment is inspected regularly by professional teams. When a problem is found, the area will be cordoned off until further action is taken. This action might involve replacement, repair or removal of the item in question. You can report damaged play equipment such as:

  • slide
  • swings
  • roundabouts
  • climbing frame
  • fencing
  • bins
  • bench

Dog bin needs emptying

Dog bins are normally emptied twice a week. You can report a dog bin is full or overflowing.

Report full dog bin

Litter bin needs emptying

You can report a park litter bin if it is overflowing.

Report full litter bin

Locked and unlocked parks

Some of our smaller and/or more enclosed parks are locked at night. The opening/locking times vary according to the time of year and are shown on the gates.

We advise visitors to make themselves aware of closing times in particular and to ensure that they leave the park by that time. It is not practical for us to lock all parks simultaneously, so it is possible that a park will be locked at the advertised time on some days, and significantly later on other days.

Larger parks and most of our open spaces and woodland areas do not have fences and therefore cannot be secured. You can report a park that hasn't been locked and is causing an issue to you.
