The Public Space Protection Order for fenced off play sites will be operated within Hackworth Park, Shildon. The smaller children’s fenced off play area will come into effect on 1st June, 2017.
Work is in progress to fence off and gate the larger children’s play area and when completed this area will also be covered by the Order.
Dogs can be securely tied to fences outside of the play areas, provided they do not pose a health and safety risk to other children and members of the public. Any dog foul must be picked up and securely disposed of in a suitable bin.
Alternatively, your dog can be exercised at another time when you are not accessing a fenced off play site.
Fenced off play areas should be safe and welcoming for children and families to enjoy.
