Kids of all ages adore Monyash's playpark. How many village “rec's” can boast a zip-wire? While that is the star feature for the daring, there is something here to suit all ages, from a simple swing and see-saw to a climbing net and that central structure which inevitably becomes a Pirate Ship in a child's imagination. The high-speed roundabout is guaranteed to make you dizzy – best not attempt the log stump challenge straight after!
There is a basket ball net just to one side and the surrounding trees sometimes get pressed into service as dens and extra climbing equipment, (kids being kids).
The whole area is covered with soft play-bark and securely fenced. No dogs or glasses are allowed in here, but as the pub garden is just over the low wall and accessed by a small, child-friendly gate; parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, friends (and dogs!) can sit enjoying a meal or drink while keeping one eye on the youngsters.
The land on which the park stands is owned by The Bull's Head, but leased to a village committee who maintain and insure the equipment.
