Play Areas

July 22, 2020 12:21 pm Published by


This well used play area was refurbished in 2014 with grants raised from the National Lottery, Town Lands Charity & South Glos Council.  It is an attractive and safe environment, suitable for use by children from age 2 to 13.  There are benches and picnic tables allowing you to enjoy the benefits the park has to offer.


Adjacent to Old Sodbury FC on Badminton Road, the play area is in keeping with the local environment and is well used during the Summer months.  The Council has recently installed new toddler swing and junior basket swings as well as a Springer.

The Ridings and Old Sodbury Play Areas are maintained and managed by Sodbury TC and routine inspections take place on a weekly basis as well as an annual inspection carried out by ROSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents). 

Outdoor spaces have proven to be very important for young people & families providing many benefits such as:

  • Bringing communities together
  • Preventing & reducing anti-social behaviour
  • Increasing accessibility & inclusivity
  • Catering for greater diversity within communities
