Dedicated children’s play area
Powburn is fortunate to have a wonderful children’s play area. It’s just next to the Community Garden, alongside the Pow Burn stream. The play area has fencing all around to keep children away from the stream and the road. However, as with all play areas, parents and adults-in-charge should supervise children at all times. The play area is unsupervised.
The children’s play area is managed and maintained by Hedgeley Parish Council who conduct an annual safety check of the park area and equipment.
It’s a wonderful space for children and adults alike to relax. There are plenty of benches for sitting down and watching the fun!
During the spring and summer months, Northumberland County Council mow the grass regularly: keeping it neat and tidy. Hedgeley Women’s Institute looks after the planters, ensuring there’s a lovely display of flowers throughout the growing season.
To protect the health of our children, animals are not allowed in the children’s play area – including dogs (except assistance dogs).
