Eden Street Play Area
The Eden Street play area is located within the Eden Street sports area. There are various items of play equipment catering for various ages, with ample seating and picnic tables available. There’s plenty of space for children to let off steam. Our Children’s Play Area is a firm favourite with the kids!
Water Splash Pad on the Green
Situated on the Green, the modern waterplay area replaced the former paddling pool. The new ‘splashpad’ design has a brightly coloured rubberised safety surface, and is laid out with water jets, fountains and sprays that can all be activated by the children pressing buttons. The splash area is a huge hit with youngsters, whose screams of delight can be heard throughout the summer. Parents and children can enjoy a picnic at the solid oak picnic tables next to the splash pad.
Woodland Adventure Play Area
Complementing the ‘splashpad’, a woodland timber play area was constructed amid the pine trees which provides a welcome recreation area for older children. Again, the area has a number of oak tables for family picnics.
Young people in Silloth were instrumental in preparing a proposal to build a BMX Track on Silloth Green. They have taken a responsible approach that has been admired by the whole community. The proposal has been supported by the Heritage Lottery and Silloth Town Council, with the new BMX Track opened in December 2013.
For some pictures taken during the opening of the BMX track check out the following video on Youtube which was put together by Alan Quayle.
