Two new play areas coming to Ifield in Crawley

Crawley Borough Council is working on two schemes to replace two play areas in Ifield.



Ewhurst Playing Fields play area is currently undergoing construction to remove the old play area. Installation of the new play area will begin in early July with an anticipated completion date in early autumn.

The new play area will be installed right next to the existing location and will include a jigsaw wall, tube slide, trapeze bars, group swing and more.

Over in Stoneycroft Walk work will begin in July to renovate some existing equipment and enhance the play area with additional, new equipment including log-step posts, play panels, rock’n’bowl and an arch-rope crossing.

Cabinet member for Wellbeing, Councillor Chris Mullins, said:

“Playing outside allows children to have fun, be healthy and stretch their imaginations. These are two exciting projects that will modernise and provide much improved play areas for our young residents and visitors to enjoy.”
