Play Parks

13th December 2022

Gift A Tree posterRWB Gift a Tree Scheme is offering residents the opportunity to buy a tree to be planted in one of 6 selected Town Parks (Jacqui Woolford Memorial Park, New Road, Old Court, Otters Way, Poetsfield & Showfield), which will then be looked after by our Grounds Team as it grows and matures. PLEASE NOTE: No availability to plant a tree at Old Court and Otters Way Parks.

Those purchasing will have the opportunity to record a message of dedication and your tree will be a gift that can be enjoyed for many years to come, not only by your loved ones,  but by the whole community.

Trees planted under the Gift a Tree scheme will help improve the look of our town, provide shade and shelter, improve soil conditions, air quality and water retention, provide valuable wildlife habitats and sequester carbon which will contribute to combating climate change.

If interested in buying a tree, please contact the Town Council.

Please Note: 2022/2023 season for tree planting has now finished and any new purchases will be added to 2023/2024 planting season.


Royal Wootton Bassett has 7 children’s play parks which are owned and maintained by the Town Council. All parks differ in the type of equipment they offer to suit various age ranges. The town’s junior schools were involved in the design for the signs for the play areas and even the choice of equipment for some of our parks. Most play parks have CCTV coverage.

We are pleased to announce that we are beginning to install accessible play equipment, starting with Old Court Toddler Park and Otter Way Play Park. We hope that they are enjoyed and greatly used.

To locate the parks, please view Map and Key. Click below to see the many parks we have to offer.

Every year the play parks are inspected by ROSPA to ensure the parks are safe and maintained to the highest standard. Our grounds team visit the play parks twice a week to inspect the equipment and more so during busy periods, particularly during the summertime and school holidays.

Litter, unfortunately and in particular during the busy summer periods, seems to be coming a more challenging problem and we would encourage users of the park to use the litter bins provided. Dogs are welcome at the parks, however please ensure they do not enter the gated areas for children safety. Please ensure all fouling is picked up and disposed off correctly. Dog poo can be put into the litter bins.
