GLP-020Stowmarket Town Council manages six play areas in the town

  • Chilton Fields:
  • Glemsford Road:
  • Hill Rise;
  • Lindsey Way;
  • Melford Road; and
  • the Recreation Ground.

The Town Council is committed to the improvement of the strategic play area and sites and we are in the middle of a project to upgrade the play area at the Recreation Ground, Finborough Road, which will be completed in time for the October half-term holiday. The £50,000 investment will see the installation of new pieces of equipment along with an upgrade of some of the existing pieces of equipment.

We are always looking for members of the community to get involved in play area improvement projects, particularly with consultation and fundraising. If you would like to get involved with improving any of the above play areas or if you have any other queries regarding them, please contact Stephanie Edmans, Community Liaison Officer, on 01449 612060 or email
