Children's Play Areas

West Lothian Council inspect and maintain play areas all year round.

Children's Play Area

Opportunities to participate in play activities are essential to the healthy mental, physical, social and emotional development of children. The main objectives are to ensure that children have accessible, safer, inclusive fun and stimulating play environments.


Inspection of play areas

West Lothian Council's equipped play areas are inspected on a regular basis. In between visits customers are invited to report any problems such as dog fouling to us by telephoning 01506 280000 or completing the online form.
