Long Cutt Play Area is accessed via an alleyway from the Snatchup end of Long Cutt or via Hill Top. Inside the fencing there is a 2 tower climbing frame for younger children aged 3 years and upwards which includes climbing and balance elements plus slide and a separate 4 person springer for younger children. For older children there is a rotating seesaw and dynamic multi-play structure to test the agility and strength of the over 6s.

When we refurbished this play area 4 years ago the original roundabout was replaced by the speed gyro suitable for wheelchair users and surfacing around all the equipment was replaced with rainbow jungle mulch which provides grip and cushions against impact.

The original rocking horse remains along with a basket swing and 2 regular swings.

Outside the playground is a basket ball net and goal posts.
