Children's play on St Mary's Island
St Mary’s Island currently has three children’s play areas: all are owned and maintained by Chatham Maritime Trust.
The Shark Park
Situated on the central walkway running north from The Stones roundabout, the Shark Park offers a kiddies’ area plus a games court for older children and teens. This includes cradle swings, flat seat swings, rolling beam, dizzy discs, multi-play unit for toddlers, ball game post, climbing frame - space net and basketball court.
This playground in Restharrow Way is suitable for kids ages 3-5 years.
This includes spring bird, equipment slide, cradle swings, spring seesaw, roundabout and recreational timbers.
This play area located in Bradfords Close was transferred to Chatham Maritime Trust at the end of July 2012 and following maintenance works was opened on the 17th August. It caters for children 3-12 years of age.
This includes monkey bars, shaking chain bridge, bay flat swings and swing barriers, hoop walk and scramble arch.
A number of play areas are due to be incorporated into Countryside's latest development - named Azure - se below. There are plans to include a Multi Games Area, a Local Area of Play and a Neighbourhood Area equipped for play.
Please note that from the 3rd to the 14th July inclusive all three play areas will be closed for maintenance (includes cleaning of the impact matting) in preparation for the school holiday period.
